Never to early to start tailgating says Chesapeake Bay area native Chris Schlesinger. Here’s his recipe for some spicy shrimp you can throw on the grill on gameday.
Baltimore-style Old Bay Grilled Shrimp
1 stick of butter
12 large shrimp, with tails on
2 Tablespoons of Old Bay
2 lemon quarters
Tabasco sauce or favorite hot sauce to taste
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Heat grill to medium-high. Put butter in medium-sized metal bowl and melt on grill. Place shrimp on three or four skewers and rest on a plate. Pour about one quarter of melted butter over shrimp, coating both sides. Set butter aside, keeping warm. Sprinkle shrimp generously on both sides with Old Bay. Grill shrimp until well seared, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, flipping just once. Grill lemon quarters on both fleshy sides until well marked. Add Tabasco to the reserved melted butter and stir. Remove shrimp from skewers and place into bowl of butter and Tabasco. Squeeze juiced from grilled lemons. Add a dash more Old Bay. Sprinkle with parsley and toss. Serves 2 to 4.
Fuck! I am gonna have to make this tomorrow.
