Shrimps on the BBQ or in the smoker, a delicacy with which you can undoubtedly charm everyone! However, it doesn’t always have to be the classic shrimp skewer, because wouldn't it be nice to try something completely new? Barbecook suggests: shrimps with a delicious Asian touch, flavoured with ingredients such as lemongrass, ginger and coriander. Yummy!
24 large shrimps, peeled and cleaned
24 lemongrass sprigs
FOR THE MARINADE:
2 cm fresh grated ginger
1 bunch of coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon maple syrup
5 tablespoons coarse sea salt
Preparing this Asian shrimps recipe requires a little preparation. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade. Lightly bruise the lemon grass twigs and skewer the raw shrimps on the twigs. Then put them in a plastic freezer bag and pour in the marinade. Place the bag in the refrigerator for two hours.
We will prepare this Asian shrimps recipe in the Oskar smoker. We will hot-smoke the Asian shrimps. Hot smoking is done between 50 and 95°C. It cooks the shrimps and gives them a delicious smoky flavour. We choose hickory smoke chips, which give off a sweet but fairly strong flavour. It’s important to soak the smoke chips in water for a while beforehand. Light the Oskar smoker using a charcoal starter. Place a few lighter cubes on the bottom grid and place the starter on top. Fill up with charcoal and light the lighter cubes through one of the holes in the bottom of the charcoal starter. After a while, a thin layer of grey ash will appear on the coals and you can drop the charcoal in the bowl. Now sprinkle the soaked hickory smoke chips on top.
Remove the shrimps with lemongrass from the marinade and drain a little. Place them on the grill of your Oskar smoker. Now let the smoker do its work. Check regularly that the shrimps are cooked. Once the shrimps have a nice colour and they are also nicely coloured inside, you can remove them from the grill.
If your shrimps turn out to be smaller than expected, you can put them on skewers to prevent them from slipping through the grill. Barbecook has many skewers in its range that will hold your shrimps with lemongrass nicely together: in chrome with wooden handle, in stainless steel with wooden handle, completely in stainless steel and in bamboo. Plenty of choice!
