How to Make the Marinade
This is the easiest process. Simply add all the ingredients to the jar and put the lid on. Then shake it all till it combines well. That is all to marination.
Grilling the Shrimp
This might be one of the quickest prep recipes that you’ve ever come across. So you need to keep a close eye on your shrimp so it doesn’t overcook.
To start, place the shrimp in a bowl or use a large Ziploc bag. Then pour the marinade over the shrimp and cover or seal the container. Place it in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes but remember marination should not exceed 2 to 3 hours. When the marination time is up, take the shrimp out of the container and discard the marinade.
Now it’s time to turn on the heat. Thread the shrimp onto the skewers leaving a little space in between. Then place the shrimp on the grill over high heat for around 4 to 6 minutes. Remember to turn them halfway through so they’re cooked equally on both sides. You’ll know when the shrimp are ready by their pink color. Finally, remove the shrimp from the skewers carefully and dish them out with a garnish of parsley and lemon wedges. Now you have the best grilled shrimp in Greensboro right there on your plate. Wouldn’t that be a sight to behold!
Storing the Shrimp
You can easily store the leftover shrimp in the refrigerator to satisfy your cravings for the next 3 to 4 days. If you want to store it for a longer time, seal it in an airtight container and freeze it. The freshness would remain for up to 2 months.
Frequently Asked Questions
What’s better? The shell on or off?
We keep our shrimp peeled. This benefits when you’re marinating the shrimp by letting the marinade flavor the shrimp directly. And it’s much easier to eat them once they’re cooked. After all, no one likes a mess at the table.
Should I grill cooked shrimp?
We wouldn’t recommend you this practice as shrimps are easily overcooked. So grilling pre-cooked shrimp would leave you with overcooked, rubbery, and tough-to-eat meat.
Should I grill frozen shrimp?
We mostly use frozen shrimp for our dishes as it remains fresh and doesn’t compromise on the taste. But remember to thaw the shrimp before marinating it otherwise the marinade won’t be able to work through the shrimp. You can simply place the frozen shrimp in the refrigerator overnight to thaw it.
Tips for Making the Best Grilled Shrimp with Seasoning
Who doesn’t want to know the expert tips on how to make the best grilled shrimp in Greensboro. The first recommendation that we have for you is to never let the shrimp sit in the marinade for too long. The ideal time for marination would be at least 15 to 20 minutes. While not exceeding the 2 to 3-hour mark. As the lime acid in the marinade would make the shrimp either too mushy or too tough.
If you’re using the wooden skewers for the grill, remember to soak them in water for a couple of hours before the grilling begins. This will prevent the wood from burning over the grill. After all, burnt wood would leave its smokey smell in the shrimp.
As you know, shrimps cook quickly. So keep an eye out for their pink and opaque color and remove them immediately from the heat. If you overdo your shrimp will become rubbery. So, these little crustaceans only need around 3 to 5 minutes over high heat to become buttery soft.
