Spicy BBQ Shrimp

1 lb  Large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2  Cup rice vinegar
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/4  Cup olive oil
1  Red hot serrano chili
1/2  tsp. dried red pepper flakes
1  tsp. lemon zest, grated
1 Tbsp. red chile paste

Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes.

Prepare shrimp by gently pulling the shells away, and removing the vein with a paring knife.

Combine all the marinade ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Add the shrimp and marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Thread 3 shrimp on each skewer, piercing at the head and tail.

Preheat grill on HIGH, then reduce heat to MEDIUM – HIGH.

With the lid open, grill the shrimp 2 – 3 minutes per side, basting once after the first turn.

Shrimp are done when just pink and opaque. Do not overcook.


About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
