BBQ Curried Shrimp

This meal was sorta thrown together. We had about half a pound of frozen uncooked shrimp that we needed to cook at our cottage. A few weeks ago at an event in Oscoda called Art on the Beach we wandered by a booth with a person named Mickey who sold his personal line of rubs and seasonings. We purchased a few bottles of his stuff and we found them to be fantastic. We bought more of spices and one of them was called "A Taste of India." It was essentially a curry seasoning. We decided to use this seasoning with the shrimp and we were not disappointed. Here is the recipe:

- 1/2 lb uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 tablespoon Mickey's "A Taste of India" seasoning
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- Crushed red pepper flakes to taste

In a small bowl, combine the seasoning, olive oil, red wine vinegar and the red pepper flakes, if used. Mix the ingredients well until the oil and the vinegar emulsify. Place the shrimp in the bowl and mix to coat the shrimp. Cover and place in the fridge for at least an hour.

While the shrimp is marinating, place 4-5 skewers in water and let them soak for at least an hour.

Prepare a fire in your grill.

Remove the shrimp from the marinade and discard the marinade. Skewer the shrimp and when the grill is ready, place the skewers on the grill. Cook the shrimp, turning every 2 minutes until the shrimp is done. Remove the skewers from the grill and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes: This was an incredibly easy meal to make. Next time, I will add more of the Indian seasoning. I cooked the shrimp for 6 minutes. They were fantastic! I would also recommend that you poke around Mickey's website. While his website is not the slickest on the planet, his seasonings are amazing!
