  • I like to just brush them with garlic butter and Old Bay seasoning. cooking them in the shell help to keep them moist too Then I lick my fingers when I peel and eat them (let everybody peel their own)

  • Italian dressing is the easiest marinade! No skewers? I hope they are big shrimp, so they don't fall through the holes, it will take less than 5 minutes for them to cook, so make sure it is the last think you do! You want them to just be pink, also only marinade for about 30 minutes to an hour, they will absorb the flavor, wish I was coming to your house for dinner LOL!

  • I don't use skewers usually to grill mine and they aren't huge.
    I marinate in canola oil, salt, fresh minced garlic and black pepper, then grill.
    Easy as pie.
