Grilled Shrimp with Garlic

We have been experimenting with grilling shrimp, using different marinade and rub methods.  The results have been delicious and easy.  

Here is another grilled shrimp recipe that sounds spicy, yummy and easy courtesy of Bobby Flay and the Food Network.


3/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons freshly chopped thyme leaves
1 1/2 tablespoons ancho chili powder
6 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
24 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
Special equipment: wooden skewers soaked in water


Heat the grill to medium.

In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup of the oil, 2 tablespoons of the thyme, ancho powder and chopped garlic. 

Skewer the shrimp and brush with marinade.

Cook the remaining 1/2 cup of the oil in a small saucepan with the sliced garlic until the sliced garlic is lightly golden brown. 

Remove the garlic slices with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels. Reserve the oil.

Increase the heat of the grill to high.

Remove the shrimp from the marinade and season with salt and pepper.  

Grill until golden brown on each side, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. 

Remove the shrimp from the skewers, transfer to a platter and drizzle with some of the reserved garlic oil and the garlic chips. 

Sprinkle with the remaining thyme and garnish with oregano leaves.
