Smoked Garlic Lemon Shrimp

BY DAVE BOATWRIGHT

1 pound of shrimp, preferably 26/30 (large, raw, peeled, tail-on)
One lemon
1 tbl black pepper
1 tbl salt
2 tbl minced garlic
1 tsp chili flakes (optional)

Put rinsed shrimp in a bowl, cut lemon in half and squeeze juice into the bowl. Add salt, pepper, garlic, and chili flakes.

Mix everything together and then lay the mixture in a cast iron skillet. Place the skillet in the smoker at 225 degrees (in the oven at 250 or a on a grill on low heat) and cook until the shrimp barely start to turn pink. Pour in 2 tbl of cooking wine (I use Mirin) and 8 tbl (one cube) of butter, sliced into chunks. Keep on cooking until the shrimp are done, usually 15-20 more minutes. The shrimp will be a uniform pink. Garnish with a bit of chopped parsley, or my favorite, cilantro. It’s fun to just bring the skillet in and serve it right out of that!
