Shrimp - using a shortcut


As you know, we just returned from vacation only 2 days ago. My cupboards are a bit bare so I went digging through the freezer and pantry to figure out dinner. I came up with a 1 pound bag of frozen shrimp and what was left of a bottle of Wegman's Basting Oil. I defrosted the shrimp and threw the shrimp into a large zip-top bag with the basting oil so they could marinate for about 20 minutes. I tossed them onto a hot grill basket and they were done in no time at all. That's one of the things I LOVE about shrimp.

I have cooked with this oil before, and enjoyed the flavor... but, this time My Husband was not thrilled with it. The rest of us enjoyed our shrimp anyway. I'd still recommend it if you have access to a Wegman's. If you don't, I think you might be able to order it on-line here.
