Cooking Notes

The recipe is easily doubled or tripled.

If using wooden skewers, soak in water first for 15 minutes to avoid burning.

Grilled Shrimp Dijon

1 pound large raw shrimp, preferably already peeled
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Preheat the gas grill to medium-high, about 400 degrees F. (Or use charcoal.)

Peel and devein the shrimp, if necessary. Secure the shrimp on metal skewers* by piercing them twice, first through the tail section and then through the body, forming a C shape.

Place butter in a 2-cup glass measure or bowl and microwave, uncovered on high, until almost melted, about 30 seconds. Whisk in mustard, blending well. Brush both sides of shrimp with sauce. Brush grill grates with vegetable oil or spray with nonstick grill spray. Grill until just pink on the first side, about 2 minutes. Turn and grill just until shrimp turn pink throughout, about 2 minutes. Serve at once.
