Ruffino's: Grilled shrimp skewers with mango salsa
BATON ROUGE - Our March Chef of the Month, Peter Sclafani, returned to the 2une In kitchen Wednesday morning to teach us another delicious recipe: Grilled Shrimp Skewers.
24 extra large Gulf Shrimp, peeled with tail on, deveined
4 bamboo or metal skewers
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
4 sprigs of thyme, de-stemmed
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons sea salt
In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. Add the shrimp, cover and refrigerate from 1 to 4 hours. If using bamboo skewers, soak in water for one hour before grilling. Preheat the grill to a medium heat. Remove the shrimp from the marinade and skewer 6 shrimp on each skewer. Grill the shrimp just until they are done. Do no overcook! They should cook about 2 minutes on each side. Serve with mango salsa. Makes 4 appetizers.
