What's this?

Juicy wood-fired shrimp gets a chili garlic kick. Give this seafood favorite some bold flavor for an appetizer you’ll keep coming back to.

Ingredients

  • 2 Pound shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 6 Thai chiles

  • 6 Clove garlic

  • 2 Tablespoon Traeger Winemaker's Napa Valley Rub

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon sugar

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon white vinegar

  • 3 Tablespoon olive oil

Steps

  • 1

    If using bamboo skewers, place them in cold water to soak for 1 hour before grilling.
  • 2

    Place shrimp in a bowl and set aside. Combine all remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until a coarse-textured paste is reached. Note: if a milder flavor is preferred, feel free to adjust amount of chiles to taste.
  • 3

    Add chile-garlic mixture to the shrimp and place in fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

    Remove from fridge and thread shrimp onto bamboo or metal skewers.

    Place shrimp on grill and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until shrimp are pink and firm to touch. Enjoy!
