  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients for marinade together then marinate shrimp in a medium-sized bowl for 15 minutes.
  • GRILLING METHOD: Preheat BBQ to 425 F. Add shrimp to skewers, then place on a baking sheet. Drizzle some extra marinade overtop then discard remaining marinade. Grill shrimp for 2 minutes per side until pink and fully cooked. Serve and enjoy!
  • STOVETOP METHOD: Add 1 tbsp butter or olive oil to a large skillet over med-high heat (I recommend butter for better flavour). Add shrimp along with marinade to skillet, sauteeing for 3-4 minutes or until shrimp are pink and no longer translucent. Serve and enjoy!
