We did these for a main course, but you could serve smaller portions – or just put on a platter with toothpicks, to have with drinks.
Shrimp cook very quickly on the barbecue grill so be careful not to overcook, or they will be dry. They should just curl and be opaque. The marinade helps retain moisture. We cook them on a silicone grill mat, but a mesh pan will work, as well. You just don’t want them falling into the fire. If you don’t have a pan, put them on skewers, like a kebab; it will be easier to turn them, also.
To do on the cooktop add a little olive oil to a large frying pan and sauté over medium-high heat for 3 – 5 minutes.
