Quick and tasty recipe for Big Green Egg Grilled (or WOK actually) Shrimp….serve with those juicy steaks you have resting to the side waiting for their final cooking cycle; Serves 2 as a light appetizer.

Ingredients
½ lb Medium - White Shrimp peeled and de-veined (approximately 10 pieces)
1 Tbs Bad Byron’s Butt Rub
½ cup All Purpose Flour
½ cup Corn Oil
3 cloves Diced Garlic
Sea Salt (to taste)
3 Tbs Green Onion
1 Tbs Butter
1 Tbs Citrus Flavored Vodka
1 tsp Chopped Parsley (for garnishing at serving time)

Preparation Directions
1. Rinse Shrimp well under cold water
2. Place flour on a large plate
3. Mix in Butt Rub and salt

Cooking Directions
Heat up the BGE to 375 degrees (at the grate); Place WOK or Grill Pan on BGE and pour in oil. Add the shrimp and fry, turning once.

Add the shrimp and the green onions, butter and vodka, mix well until the butter is all melted and remove from the heat
