On The Grill
by Andrea Alden
Lightly grill the shrimp
- 8 to 10 oz. of uncooked spaghetti or fettuccini pasta
- 16 to 20 large shrimp, shelled and de-veined
- 2 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. grated citrus peel
(lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, or a combination of all three)
- ¼ tsp. dehydrated garlic
- salt to taste
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 3 tbsp. olive oil
- 4 cloves of garlic, sliced thin
- ½ cup of dry white wine like sauvignon blanc
- 1 tbsp. dried parsley
- ¼ cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese
- freshly ground salt and pepper to taste
- ½ of a fresh lemon, squeezed
- red pepper flakes (optional)
Cook pasta until it’s just a little less than al dente, you want it slightly undercooked so that it will finish in the Wok. Reserve a ½ cup of pasta water.
Preheat your grill to 400°F.
Season the shrimp with pepper, grated citrus peel, garlic, and salt to taste. Grill the shrimp over direct heat until they’re nearly done, about 3 minutes per side.
While the shrimp are grilling, melt the butter and oil in the Napoleon Stainless Steel Wok
, over medium-low heat, on your side burner. Add the garlic and the optional red pepper flakes just before you’re ready to add the shrimp so that it doesn’t overcook.
Remove the shrimp from the grill and add them to the garlic and butter, tossing to coat. Pour in the wine and cover the wok for 2 to 3 minutes while everything simmers.
Add the pasta, parsley, and parmesan to the wok, tossing to combine. If there’s not enough liquid, you can add the pasta water, a dribble at a time, until everything is smooth and coated.
When you’re ready to serve, add salt and pepper to taste, and then squeeze the fresh lemon over top. Garnish with additional parmesan cheese.
