This is a crowd favorite. I serve this with steak when I am grilling for the gang.  Yes you can serve over pasta but I find that pasta is a hard food to eat at a backyard bbq.

Large Frying Pan
Chafing Dish with fuel

Ingredients: Enough for 20 jumbo Shrimp. Scale to fit the number of guests and what you are serving the shrimp with.  I plan on 4 shrimp per person when it compliments a steak.

Shrimp - Jumbo

Olive Oil - 1/2 cup
Red Pepper Flakes - 1/2 tsp
Garlic - Crushed 5tsp (use the bottled stuff) or 10 garlic cloves

Pan Sauce:
Butter - 1/4 stick
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Garlic - Crushed 2 tsp
Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
Salt and Pepper to taste
Parsley - Chopped for garnish

I prepare the shrimp first and keep it warm in the chafing dish while I grill a great steak!  Make sure you preheat your chafing dish.

Mix the marinade ingredients and pour it into a Ziploc bag with the shrimp. Refrigerate for 1 hour or longer.

Heat grill to high.

Grill each shrimp on high for 2 minutes per side.

Combine and melt the pan sauce in the large frying pan over your grill, then add your grilled shrimp.  Cook for about 1 minute toss while cooking.  Transfer to the chafing dish (shrimp and sauce).
