Since I am a huge shrimp fan and also shrimp is very low fat, I am always looking for different recipes. This one has great flavors; orange and bbq and it goes right on the grill. It’s been real hot here in NY the past few days so anything that can be put on the grill is fine with me!
3 Tbsp barbecue sauce, chipotle-variety
2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped
1 tsp orange zest, plus extra for garnish
1 1/2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 pound(s) uncooked shrimp, extra large, fresh or thawed frozen, peeled and deveined, I left the tails on (21-25 per pound)
3 spray(s) cooking spray, divided
2 Tbsp uncooked scallion(s), sliced
If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir together bbq sauce, cilantro, orange zest and juice, vinegar and cumin. Add shrimp and toss to coat; let marinate at least 10 minutes. Actually closer to 30 mins
Thread 5 or 6 shrimp onto the skewers and brush with sauce remaining in bowl; lightly coat skewers with cooking spray.
Coat grill rack with cooking spray; heat grill.
