Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Best Shrimp to Use?

The perfect shrimp to grill is the large, jumbo or colossal size fresh shrimp. We recommend buying shrimp that is already peeled and deveined. But you can grill shrimp with the peel on. I like to keep things easy, so I look for the shrimp that is already peeled.
When cooking shrimp on the Blackstone, always buy raw shrimp. Already cooked shrimp will shrink in size when heated for to long.
If you use frozen shrimp, make sure to allow the shrimp to thaw before placing on the Blackstone.

Can I Make Garlic Butter Shrimp indoors?

Yes, we look cooking shrimp indoors. This is great when you do not have a Blackstone. Place the shrimp in a large skillet over medium high heat. You can use a griddle or we recommend cooking the shrimp in a cast iron skillet with your favorite veggies.

How Long to Cook Shrimp on Blackstone:

Cooking Shrimp on the Blackstone Griddle takes only about 3 to 4 minutes. Make sure to start with a hot griddle and add the butter before adding the shrimp. This allows the shrimp to cook fast and flavorful.
