Picture of the Day – April 30, 2012
Last night I did an experiment while grilling some shrimp. If you read yesterday’s blog then you know that I made Key Lime Grilled Shrimp. It was delicious by the way. I left the shells on half the shrimp and took all but the tails off the other half. I massaged the key lime marinade, which was really more like key lime mayonnaise, all over the shrimp and under the shell. I let it set for over an hour before putting them on the grill. Now shrimp cooks fast, even these jumbo shrimps; I grilled them for three minutes on each side.
So which was better? Flavor wise, hands down,shell on; but get me wrong, they both tasted great! So it really depends on what you want. Do you want the ease of just picking up the shrimp and eating it? Or, are you okay with getting your fingers messy and peeling the shrimp? Either way I’m sure you’ll enjoy your shrimp and you really should try the Key Lime Grilled Shrimp recipe.
