So, as you all know, I am still without a kitchen while waiting to close on our new house, which means I have had to embrace alternative cooking methods… So this time around, I was looking for a recipe I could try out on the barbeque, but I wanted to try something different – no just another chicken recipe. I found a link for Grilled Shrimp and Lobster Gremolata on Pinterest.
I love gremolata. It’s an Italian sauce made from flat leaf parsley, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and olive oil. The recipe called for tomatoes, but I really don’t like them, so I just didn’t add any to mine.
The recipe was very straight forward. First I chopped up the parsley, then I added the minced garlic, then the lemon juice and zest. Once everything was in a bowl, I mixed in some olive oil to give it a nice consistency.
I then let that sit and started prepping the shrimp and lobster tails. I cleaned and deviened the shrimp and defrosted the lobster tail.
Then I made the tin foil pot to use on the grill…
Once I had the bottom wide enough and the sides sturdy enough, I added the shrimp, lemon wedges, lobster tails and gremolata.
Then it was off to the barbeque for about 7 minutes. I added a single pat of butter to the packet and let it cook for another 5 minutes. While boiling up some Angel Hair pasta.
I mixed the shrimp, gremolata and pasta together and added the lobster tail to the plate when I served dinner. It was ridiculously good, and pretty easy to make! I can’t wait to try it again!
