How to make Cajun Style Grilled Shrimp
Start by cleaning your shrimp if it has not been prepared as of yet. Place the shrimp in a large zip top bag.
You may need to split the shrimp into two bags if your bag is not large enough to hold all of the shrimp. You should fill the back ¾ full at most.
In a small to medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, garlic, and Cajun seasoning.
Pour the ingredients from the bowl over the shrimp and close the bag. Move the bag around to properly cover all of the shrimp with the contents from the bowl. Then refrigerate this for at least 30 minutes.
When you are ready to grill the shrimp. Be sure to soak your wooden skewers for 30 minutes. Prepare the grill for nonstick (I will brush with additional oil) and then heat it at a medium heat.
Remove each shrimp from the bag and thread the skewer through the largest part of the shrimp. Grill the shrimp for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until the shrimp has turned pink.
Serve with the optional melted butter or oil as described in the optional ingredients above.
Make sure that soy sauce has no added sugar- most do not.
Add additional seasonings- chili powder/paprika- or a teaspoon of hot sauce for an extra kick
