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 until the peppers are slightly charred and the shrimp is cooked through, about 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.

  • Serve immediately and enjoy.

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.
