    Main Dish

  • Cusine



2 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus more to taste

1 teaspoon sugar

2 medium cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 recipe Chermoula


Combine shrimp, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl and toss to coat. Thread shrimp onto sets of 2 skewers, alternating heads to tails and pushing shrimp together so that they fit tightly on skewers; you should have about 6 shrimp on each set of 2 skewers. Lay skewers on top of a baking dish so that shrimp are suspended above bottom of dish. Transfer to refrigerator and allow to rest for 1 hour. Meanwhile, combine garlic and olive oil in a small bowl. When shrimp are ready to grill, brush both sides with garlic/oil mixture. Light 1 chimney full of charcoal. When all charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and arrange coals on one side of charcoal grate. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill, and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Alternatively, set half the burners on a gas grill to the highest heat setting, cover, and preheat for 10 minutes. Clean and oil grilling grate. Place shrimp directly over hot side of grill and cook, turning occasionally, until shrimp are just cooked through and well charred, 4 to 5 minutes total. Transfer shrimp to a cutting board. Carefully remove skewers from shrimp and transfer to a medium bowl. Add 1 tablespoon chermoula and toss to coat. Season to taste with more salt if necessary. Transfer to a serving platter, spoon more chermoula on top, and serve immediately.
