Orange-Honey Glazed Shrimp Skewers

Recommended Posts

 

I fired up the Kamado Joe Classic this evening to try out one of the recipes in Chris Lilly's new "Fire & Smoke" book.  I can't say much more than OUTSTANDING for this recipe!

 

Chris Lilly's "Yuzu Shrimp Skewers"

 

Ingredients:

 

1 to 2 pounds of 30ct shrimp, peeled, deveined, with tails on

 

Marinade:

 

5 tablespoons Yuzu juice (I had to substitute Orange Juice here)

1/4 cup honey

2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce

4 teaspoons sriracha chili sauce

4 teaspoons sesame oil

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon minced garlic

 

Directions:

 

Prep your grill for direct cooking at a temp of 450-500°F.  I elevated my grill rack to the highest position to keep from scorching the shrimp.

 

Rinse and dry the shrimp.

 

Combine the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl and wisk together until all the honey is dissolved and incorporated.  Add the shrimp to the bowl and toss/mix together to coat the shrimp.  Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes.

 

Remove the shrimp from the marinade and put on bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water.  Place on the grill and cook for 2 minutes per side until done.

 

Serve hot!

 

Notes:

 

The flavor on this shrimp was likely the BEST I have ever tasted.  It has a small amount of heat to it but that heat doesn't hit you until you have eaten a few of the shrimp.  It's NOT hot... it just has a fantastic spicy profile.

Hey john,

I finally got a chance to watch the video. This might be a silly question, but I only learn by asking. Can you comment on the differences in this recipe with regards to direct or indirect heat? I assume the shrimp are on and off so quickly that there would be no differance in flavor.

      Well I got a Kamado Joe Classic II for my birthday last month and I've been trying different things and really enjoying this cooker. 
       
      Last night we tried thin-crust pizza on a pizza stone. 
       
      I watched all the @John Setzler pizza videos on the Kamado Joe cooking channel and used a very simple crust recipe with King Arthur bread flour. 
       
      My kids had some friends over after Church so we ended up cooking 8 different pizzas. 
       
      I think I'm really sold on parchment paper now.  I had never used it before, but there was no sticking and the pizza would slide off the paper/peel onto a waiting serving dish quite easily. 
       
      Got the Joe up to 500-550 F and it took about 7 minutes per pizza and they all came out great.

      I really do love the new firebox design and having the peace of mind that I'll probably never see this thing crack. Great concept, looks great, etc... That said, cleaning the Big Joe used to be such a simple proposition of removing the ring and firebox, vacuuming, and replacing them. Now, it is much more of a hassle- so much so that I definitely clean less and even then, try to do so when I have another pair of hands available to reset all of the pie pieces (let's call them) in place. I am also a clean freak and the ash that finds it way into the cracks between the pie pieces drives me nuts. 
       
      Not wishing to go back, just bemoaning the additional hassle somewhat.
       
      Also wondering, has anyone successfully bent their ash collector flaps in order to reduce the air gap between it and the firebox? Just wondering. May just be a byproduct of using the Kick Ash Basket but, a lot more ash is finding its way around the collector.
       

       
      My ash tray is also bent a little (off skew) and I may try to bring it back to square the next time it's heated.

      Hello, I just got a joe jr on Craigslist and it has a broken handle and is missing the grate and deflector rack. Does anyone know where I can get the deflector rack in the states or have an extra one?   Can find a grate and make a handle. Thanks in advance!!

      Hi everyone,
      We have had a Weber grill for years, but am looking at a ceramic grill. It looks like a wonderful way to cook. Trying to decide on which one.
      1. We are thinking about the Vision Grill Hybrid. Does anyone have any experience with it or should we stick with the one without the gas? Does lid stay open when partially opened?
      2. Also looking at the Prime Ceramic 778 as it is made in the USA. But can you use an electric igniter with this one? Is it easy to clean out the ashes? Does lid stay open when partially opened?
      3. Looking also at the Kamado Joe, 24 inch. Can you use an electric igniter with this as well?

      Chicken is my wife’s flavor and I like to mix it up so I went with a Shawarma feast. Started out with some chicken thighs that were on sale.

      Shinned and deboned and cut them in half.

      Bones were saved for making stock at a later time.

      Next I made up a yogurt based shawarma marinade. Here are the ingredients:
      1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt
      5 cloves of garlic
      ¼ cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
      ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar
      2 tbsp. of olive oil
      2 tbsp. of ketchup
      1 teaspoon cloves
      1 teaspoon salt
      1 teaspoon paprika
      ½ teaspoon cumin
      ½ teaspoon caraway (ground fennel)
      ½ teaspoon cardamon
      ½ teaspoon of oregano or thyme
      ½ teaspoon cinnamon
      ½ teaspoon nutmeg
      ½ teaspoon crushed peppercorn
      ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
      ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
       
       

       
       

       
       
      Everybody in the pool

      and then thoroughly mixed.

      The thighs now went into pool for a nice long rest.

      Next I made up some Tzatziki. Here are the ingredients: (From Chef John on FoodWishes.com)
      2 cups Greek yogurt
      1 large cucumber, peeled, grated, tossed with 1/2 teaspoon of salt
      4 cloves garlic, very finely minced
      juice of half a lemon or vinegar to taste
      3 tbsp. chopped fresh dill and/or mint
      salt, pepper, to taste
       



      Next up was the Hummus ingredients.
      One 15-ounce can (425 grams) chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans
      1/4 cup (59 ml) fresh lemon juice, about 1 large lemon
      1/4 cup (59 ml) tahini (we used Krinos)
      Half of a large garlic clove, minced
      2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
      1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt, depending on taste
      1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
      2 to 3 tablespoons water
      Dash of ground paprika for serving

       
       

      Then some Persian Rice (From Bosco)

      2 cups of basmati rice
      3 ½ cups of chicken stock/broth
      2 tbsp of butter
      ½ tsp turmeric
      ¼ tsp cumin
      Kosher salt and pepper

      And finally a Mediterranean Tomato Salad.

       
       

      Now I can cook the Shawarma. Broke out my good skewers. (Closest I can come to a Shawarma rotisserie) I used two so I could better control them on the grill.

      Now I tightened up the stops to help keep in the marinade and juices

      and placed them on the grill.

      Flipped them after 5 to 6 minutes.

      Here is everything plated up family style with some cucumber slices, baby pickles, pita bread and a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA.

      So Good! My wife loved everything and said it was the better that anything she’s ever ordered at a restaurant.
      Thanks for looking.
