Loving smoked flavor shrimp.....What more can I say....
2 lbs raw shrimp devein and shells tails kept on.
15- 20 skewers with 2-5 shrimp each
Use wood skewers, soak them in water for about an hour before putting them on the grill this prevents them from burning on the grill
Passion fruit marinade:
2 teaspoons of ground cumin
1 teaspoon of chili powder
1 tablespoon annatto powder
2 tablespoons of olive oil
½ cup pure passion fruit juice or concentrate, unsweetened
Salt and pepper
Achiote butter for basting:
2 tbs of melted
½ tbs ground achiote
Dipping sauces and sides:
Spicy cilantro salsa
Spicy Avocado Salsa
In a large bowl, cover the shrimp with the passion fruit marinade ingredients and let it sit for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
Pre-heat the grill.
Put the shrimp on the skewers. If the skewers are a main meal put 5-6 shrimp on each skewer.
Brush the shrimp with the melted butter achiote right before placing on the grill.
Grill for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until the shrimp are fully cooked. Baste with the achiote butter as needed.
Serve with dipping sauces and lime slices.
