3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place the shrimp skewers on the grill, and cook for 2–3 minutes on each side. Don’t overcook your shrimp, they cook quickly. Fully cooked shrimp turn pinkish on the outside and white on the inside.

  • When the shrimp reaches an internal temperature of 145°F on a digital meat thermometer, remove the shrimp skewers from the grill and place on a cutting board to rest.

  • Place the watermelon salad onto a plate, and lightly sprinkle the feta cheese over the top of the salad.
  • Add the shrimp skewers on top of the watermelon salad, and drizzle the sriracha hot honey over the shrimp and salad.
