Grilled Shrimp in Galena’s Tomato Vodka Sauce
Love this warmer spring weather we are having here in Memphis. Last night was a perfect night to do a little outdoor grilling. However I was really in the mood for some Italian food. What goes great with any pasta dish???? SHRIMP
How to Grill Shrimp
1 pound large shrimp
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste
30 6-inch skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes prior to use)*
Peel and devein the shrimp. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine shrimp, oil, salt and pepper. Insert skewer through entire body of shrimp (this prevents shrimp from curling up when cooked – see picture above). Preheat grill to high heat, spray grill with cooking spray. Place prepared shrimp on grill and cook 2 minutes on each side, or until shrimp is pink and opaque. Remove from grill, when cooled, remove skewer from shrimp. Place in bowl until needed.
Prepare Tomato Vodka Sauce according to directions. Add shrimp to sauce with the heavy cream. Toss with your favorite cooked pasta.
*Soak package of skewers in a large bowl of water with a small plate on top to hold down the skewers. Remove skewers and place in a zip lock bag in the freezer. Your skewers will be ready for use whenever you need them.
