Skewered Garlic Butter Shrimp with Guacamole
5 lbs large or jumbo size shrimp, peeled and deveined
3/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup olive or avocado oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
5 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced
4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Guacamole (recipe follows)
Delicious and Quick Guacamole
6 ripe medium California Avocados, seeded and peeled
3 Tbsp fresh lime or lemon juice
1 medium tomato, diced
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 Tbsp seasoned salt
2 Tbsp garlic powder
Thread 4 shrimp close together on each thin wooden skewer. Melt butter in
pan. Add oil, garlic and parsley; heat just until bubbling, then remove
sauce from heat. Place skewered shrimp on a rack in a pan; brush
generously with garlic sauce. Broil shrimp 4 inches from heat until they
turn bright pink (about 4 minutes). Baste at least once with garlic sauce.
Turn and broil on other side about 3 minutes or until shrimp feel firm
when pinched; baste once. (Or place skewers on a greased grill about 6
inches from hot coals. Cook and baste as directed for broiled shrimp.)
Place each skewer on serving plate and lightly sprinkle with lemon juice.
Serve with Guacamole.
Coarsely mash avocado, leaving some chunks.
Add remaining Ingredients and mix to blend.
