Char Broiled Shrimp from Mike Centola

Updated: Jan 4

Lasst Friday night, my family go together to have our Christmas celebration. It was based around shucking oysters. But one of the dishes served was one I never thought of. After we had Char Broiled Oysters, my brother Mike started to Char Broil Shrimp.  He used the oyster shells and just replaced the oysters with shrimp. To say they were delicious would be an understatement. The good thing about this dish is that it shrimp are easier to to get than shell oysters. Just keep some oyster shells to use for shrimp.

2 sticks Butter soften

3 tablespoons Garlic chopped

¾ teaspoon ground Black pepper

½ teaspoon Italian Seasoning

2 dozen Oyster shells

2 dozen 31-35 Shrimp peeled and deveined

¼ cup Romano Cheese shredded

2 ½ teaspoons fresh Parsley chopped

Mix butter, garlic, pepper, and Italian Seasonings together in a

bowl. Heat a grill, either gas or charcoal, and put the shrimp

in the shells over the hottest part of the grill. Spoon enough of the

seasoned butter over the oysters so that some of it will over

flow into the fire and flame up a bit. Cook the shrimp for 3-5 minutes, making sure they

are cooked. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese and parsley on

top. Serve on the shell immediately with hot French bread to soak up

the sauce.

Enjoy!!!
