What is the Best Shrimp to use?

The perfect shrimp to grill is the large, jumbo or colossal size shrimp. We buy the 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.

Ingredients

  • Raw Shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • Butter
