These easy BBQ Shrimp Skewers are slathered with my homemade BBQ sauce, so perfect for any night of the week, or great if you want to feed a crowd – simply double or triple the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb jumbo raw shrimp (shelled and deveined (weight after peeled))
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce
  • 8 long wooden skewers

Instructions

  • Soak the skewers in water at least 20 minutes to prevent them from burning (or use metal skewers to save time).
  • Combine the shrimp with crushed garlic and season with salt and pepper. You can let this marinate for 15 minutes, or even overnight.
  • Heat a clean, lightly oiled grill to medium heat, when the grill is hot add the shrimp, careful not to burn the skewers.
  • Grill on both sides for about 6 - 8 minutes total cooking time or until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through.
  • Brush the sauce on during the last minute of cooking and eat right away.
