RV Nana’s Spicy Grilled Gulf Coast Shrimp

As we traveled this summer we were so luck to find some great fresh seafood along the Texas Gulf Coast.  One of my customers told me about this wonderful recipe she found in the KOA directory.  Try it and see for yourself why we like this twist on shrimp.

Prep time:  15 minutes
Marinate:    1 hour
Grill:            7 – 10 minutes

1 1/2 pounds of extra large shrimp (peeled and deveined) we used fresh
ones from the piers in Galveston but frozen will work, too.
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup honey
2-3 tsp. Cajun seasoning, divided
1 T olive oil

Thaw shrimp, rinse and pat dry.  If using wooden skewers, soak the skewers for an hour and this helps prevent them from burning on the grill.  In a microwave safe bowl combine marmalade, honey and 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning.  Set aside.

Place shrimp in a ziplock bag.  Mix oil and remaining Cajun seasoning and pour over the shrimp.  Marinate for about an hour, turning the bag occasionally.

Drain shrimp and discard marinade.  Place shrimp on skewers (you can alternate with optional  onions and bell peppers). Grill directly on over a medium heat until shrimp are opaque, turning at least once during the grilling time.

Heat the marinade for about one minute in the microwave until melted. Transfer shrimp to a plate and drizzle with marmalade mixture.  We love to serve this over long grain and wild rice.  Add a salad and you have a terrific dinner.  Enjoy!
