Skewered shrimp are perfect for RV trips because they aren’t dependent on precise quantities, measurements, or even ingredients. This recipe is popular with Florida RVers since fresh shrimp is sold right off of the boats at our local docks.
Ingredients: Peeled and deveined jumbo shrimp, teriyaki sauce, garlic, pineapple, green onion. Optional ingredients: red pepper flakes, chopped fresh ginger, lime zest.
Serving size: 4
Step 1: Start with washing, then peeling and deveining the shrimp. Set aside in a medium sized bowl.
Step 2: Pour 1/2 to 1 cup of teriyaki sauce into a dish. How much you use depends on how many shrimp you use. Slice up 2 or 3 green onions and throw them into the teriyaki sauce.
Step 3: If you used canned pineapple chunks, add some of the pineapple juice to the teriyaki sauce. You can add a couple tablespoons of lemon juice and a dash of salt to taste. From there, feel free to include the following if you have these ingredients available: red pepper flakes, chopped fresh ginger, lime zest, chopped jalapenos.
Step 4: Mix the teriyaki sauce and all added ingredients to your satisfaction, and then throw in the peeled/deveined shrimp. Stir to coat.
Step 5: Cover with plastic wrap and allow the shrimp/teriyaki sauce to marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Step 6: When the shrimp are done marinating, thread them onto the wooden skewers. You can put several shrimp on one long skewer or you can just do a single shrimp on each skewer — this works well if you intend to use them as appetizers.
Step 7: Heat up your outdoor or indoor grill. Put the skewered shrimp on to cook for a minute or two. A minute or two later, flip them to the other side. Let them cook for another minute or two… and repeat.
Step 8: When your skewered shrimp are done, move them to a plate. For dinner, these are great with rice. You can boil any leftover marinade, strain it, and pour it over the top of the rice.
Step 9: Serve and eat!
