Shrimp (actually) on the Barbie - Joanne's Savory Summary
Look, I am going to level with you. I had the 'barbie' (or as us Americans call it - a grill) and I didn't have much success either. As Jen mentioned I think the key to flavorful shrimp may be all in the spice rub. My marinade seemed thin too so as soon as I put it on the shrimp they seemed to repel it. This was especially the case as I cooked the shrimp on the grill grates. Instead of my shrimp basting in flavor, my grill served as a mere drip pan for the discarded marinade. Well lessons learned. Still, it was nice to have some shrimp during the summer even if I ended up only using it as the protein in my salad. We'll do better next time. We promise! Joanne
