I used to hate shrimp.
Absolutely hate it, unless it was popcorn shrimp, but let’s be honest, after dunking those lil deep fried bites into ketchup they were more like chicken nuggets than seafood.
Now I love shrimp.
Absolutely love it, especially when it isn’t deep fried and dunked in sauce.
And these firecracker shrimp are no exception!!! You can serve them as an appetizer or the main dish, it’s your choice, no matter what there’s sure to be none left at the end of the meal!
Here’s what ya need:
1/3 cup Harissa paste
1 pound peeled shrimp
We used our own Harissa blend and followed the guidelines on the back to make a paste. Mix your paste and shrimp and let them sit up to thirty minutes. Skewer and throw them on your grill!!
It was hard not to eat these shrimp right away but we managed to hold back long enough to throw them on a bed of slaw in a hot dog bun:
We served these delightful sandwiches with a side of tomato cucumber salad seasoned with our spiced sea salt and grilled corn seasoned with our grill seasoning.
