Barbecue Shrimp

            Shrimp on the Barbie? I am in! Shrimp is my most favorite seafood! To have it grilled and covered in Barbecue sauce, just my cup of tea. When you put all the ingredients suggested together, it is like a shrimp boil as a kebab. These are so tasty and super ebay to make.

            These are made with small chunks of sweet corn on the cob, baby red potatoes and meat, along with the shrimp. For the meat, you could use sausages, bratwurst or andouille sausage. Either of the options is going to taste delicious.

            These are perfect for small get togethers, intimate parties and even game days or picnics. Shrimp can be expensive, but these make it worth the cost of fresh shrimp. Instead of the combination of tabasco and spices, you could also lightly brush the items with barbecue sauce of choice. Add a little heat if you would like, or keep it simple and use only barbecue.

            I like to think of this favorite recipe as one that I can experiment with differently, each time I make it.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            The recipe says large prawns, can I use smaller and add more to each skewer?

You certainly could. Be very careful putting them on the skewer, when they are smaller, it is harder to keep them on the sticks.

            Could I leave the corn off?

Of course, however, as stated earlier, this is just about exact to a shrimp boil. If you prefer different vegetables please do so.
