Barbecued Shrimp with a Bloody Mary Dipping Sauce

Published On June 20, 2013 | By Peter Georgakopoulos | Entree, Food

“Throw another shrimp on the barbie!” Now that’s an expression I’ve heard more times than I care to remember. But that’s exactly what we’re doing today at The Boys Club! And to accompany these beautiful, barbecued shrimp, I have a robust Bloody Mary Dipping Sauce recipe for you.

The shrimp, or prawns as I know them, are simply marinated in a mixture of olive oil, garlic, and lemon zest. The trick is to barbecue the shrimp quickly. Any longer, and the shrimp will end up tough and floury. You have been warned! The sauce itself takes inspiration from the famous Bloody Mary cocktail. It’s a raw sauce, and my best advice would be to adjust some of the ingredients to suit your palate. I prefer it a little bit more on the “lemon-y” side, so I always end up adding a little bit more lemon juice. Like it hot? Fine. Add an extra teaspoon of cayenne. It’s up to you!

Overall, the dish comes together quite quickly. I like to make the Bloody Mary Dipping Sauce ahead of time and leave it in the fridge to allow the flavours to develop. Once the shrimp come off the “barbie” hot plate, serve the dipping sauce on the side with a wedge of lemon. It makes a great tapas style snack or a fantastic starter at your next summer barbecue.
