GRILLED JUMBO SHRIMP DRIZZLED W/ LEMON- CHIPOTLE BUTTER
20 extra large shrimp, de-veined, shell on
½ cup cajun seasoning
1 cup olive oil
1 large lemon, sliced
2 Tbs cilantro, chopped
½ lb butter, melted
3 Tbs canned chipotle chile paste
1 Tbs garlic, chopped
2 medium lemons, zested and juiced
salt and pepper to taste
1. Marinate shrimp in cajun seasoning, olive oil, lemon and cilantro for 3-4 hours.
2. Heat grill or broiler to medium-high heat. Grill the shrimp with the shells on. The shells keep the meat moist and add a whole new realm of flavor to the shrimp. This should take 8-10 minutes. Baste with marinade repeatedly while cooking. Before serving, slip shells off.
3. Mix the melted butter, chipotle chile, garlic, lemon juice and zest, and season with salt and pepper as needed. Use this mixture to drizzle on top of the cooked shrimp.
