Asian Grilled Shrimp

For a quick and tasty meal that you can cook in your camper’s outside kitchen – try these spicy Asian grilled shrimp. Buy large enough shrimp that they won’t fall through the grill when cooking!

If you are a chile head (i.e., one who loves very spicy food), there are some pretty hot asian chiles to try! You can always crank up the heat/spice level by adding more or hotter chiles. Cook an artichoke on the grill as a side dish and you have a fun, peel-n-eat feast! If you can find head-on shrimp that’s a bonus for best taste. Try it – you might like it.
