If it's in the freezer, I Grilled It. Improptu Chipotle Shrimp

Yesterdays plans included trying to give away our grill in anticipation of the move.  However, my husband wants me to save the empty propane tank and bring it with me so we have an extra tank as we do grill a lot and often run out in the middle of grilling our steaks! 

Yesterday I opened the freezer and the pickings were sparse, but I grilled everything in there that was grill-able.  A pound of shrimp, 2 burgers, 1 pork chop, 2 chicken breasts....  the propane was still going strong.  I let it run about 30 or 40 minutes more and used the time to scrub it clean with the wire brush.  Still showing no sign of letting up I decided to turn it off, admit I wasn't going to be able to give it away yet and resigned myself to buying a steak later this week for dinner. 

Here is last nights shrimp marinade - although I didn't measure anything, I can guesstimate.  Marinades are like that.  Just play with your food!

Impromptu Shrimp Marinade

In a large ziploc baggy place the cleaned shrimp.  Add oil (canola or olive) - about 1/3 cup.  I added about 2 teaspoons Chipotle chile powder seasoning.  About 1 teaspoon garlic pepper seasoning.  Massage the baggy to coat the shrimp.  Thread on a metal skewer and grill about 4-5 minutes per side over medium heat until pink and white and no longer gray.  Mmmm!Print Friendly and PDF
