A buttery, spicy marinade is the secret to these simple but flavourful grilled shrimp. Laced with cayenne pepper and paprika, grill them super fast using the Uuni Sizzler.
Serves 4 as an appetiser
500g (18oz) raw shrimp, peeled with tails on
100g (3.5oz) butter, melted
3 teaspoons (8g) cayenne pepper
3 teaspoons (8g) paprika
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons (35ml) honey
2 teaspoons (5g) salt
2 tablespoons (35g) parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons (35ml) olive oil
Preheat your Ooni Pro or Uuni 3 to 300°C (572°F). You can check the temperature inside Uuni Pro using the Uuni Infrared Thermometer. If using a conventional oven, preheat to 200°C (392°F).
Add the olive oil to your Uuni Sizzler and place inside the oven to warm up. You can also use an Uuni Grizzler or Uuni Skillet for this recipe.
In a large bowl, combine the butter, cayenne pepper, paprika, lemon juice, honey and salt and mix until well combined. Add the prawns and coat well with the marinade. Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least half an hour.
Remove the Sizzler from the oven, and add all the shrimp to to the hot pan along with the marinade from the bowl. Return to the oven and cook for 2 minutes, or until the shrimp flesh has browned on one side.
Pull the Sizzler out of the oven, toss the shrimp to turn them over and return to the oven for another two minutes, or until the shrimp are slightly browned all over.
Remove the Sizzler from the oven, scatter the shrimp with the parsley and serve immediately. There’s no need for cutlery – pick the shrimp up by the tail!
