Famous Dave’s BBQ Shrimp with Mango Salsa
Grilled shrimp is good, Famous Dave’s shrimp with mango salsa is even better!
2 lbs. (16-20) raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
Shrimp Marinade (recipe follows)
Dave’s All-Purpose Fish Seasoning (recipe follows)
Mango Salsa (recipe follows)
Set the EGG for direct cooking at 350°F/177°C.
Peel and devein shrimp; place in a large plastic bag.
Prepare marinade. Pour marinade into plastic bag with shrimp, seal and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. After 2 hours, drain shrimp into a sieve over a bowl, and discard the marinade.
Skewer shrimp with Flexible Skewers or wooden skewers soaked in water. Lightly season shrimp with Dave’s All-Purpose Fish Seasoning, and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. Grill shrimp — this won’t take long and once they start looking opaque they are done. Baste with straight BBQ Sauce just before taking off the EGG; okay! enough to caramelize the sauce.
Arrange Mango Salsa in the center of a large platter and place BBQ shrimp on top. Take a few lime slices and spritz lime juice over the shrimp. Garnish the edge of your platter with lime wedges.
