Grilled Shrimp Scampi – Weekend Grilling Style! Most of us love grilled shrimp. While I love my Mangia.TV rubbed grilled shrimp, I also love a good shrimp scampi. What to do? Bring the best of both worlds with this simple recipe using your favorite cast iron skillet right on your grill!
Wash your shrimp, I used jumbo shrimp with tails on, so as you wash them then remove the tails. Pat dry with a paper towel and lightly coat with olive oil and sprinkle a light coat of Mangia.Tv Shrimp Mojo Dry Rub on them and let them soak up the dry rub love for about ten minutes or so while your grill comes up to temp.
Place your cast iron skillet onto your grill grates and place a good amount of a garlic and herb infused compound butter. When the butter starts to bubble, place the rubbed shrimp into the skillet. We love garlic and even though the compound butter has garlic in it, we also add more Garlic Garlic seasoning from Tastefully Simple for added garlic flavor.
Close the grill lid to allow as much smoke flavor as you can to be absorbed by the shrimp. After two minutes stir the shrimp and continue to stir every two minutes or so until the shrimp is light pink/white in color. Don’t over-cook the shrimp but at the same time the longer it’s in your covered the grill the more smoke/grilled flavor the shrimp will have.
Serve over your favorite pasta and enjoy!
Leftovers? No worries! Warm up the leftover shrimp and place over tortilla chips for some great tasting shrimp nachos, or add them to a salad for some added zing to a boring salad.
