If you like copycat restaurant recipes, then our recipe for Shrimp on the Barbie is right up your alley. This recipe tastes like it came straight out of your favorite steakhouse. It's the flavorful blend of seasonings that really give it that "down under" flavor!

What You'll Need

  • 8 metal or wooden skewers (soak wooden skewers 15 to 20 minutes before using)
  • 32 colossal-size raw shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tails on
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

What to Do

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Thread 4 shrimp on each skewer and place on baking sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, salt, black and cayenne peppers; mix well.
  3. Brush half the butter over top of shrimp and sprinkle with half the spice mixture. Place shrimp skewers on grill, seasoning side down. Brush uncoated side of shrimp with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining seasoning.

Very good and so easy. Will make again.

My husband and I love this! Will make again. Did not have chili powder so I substituted Old Bay seasoning. Really delicious.
