Shrimp- It's in the Bag

Pat Duran


If you love shrimp and spices you will love this recipe- you all know who I am talking about-eat them out of the bag just like popcorn. I just omit the hot stuff in my bag and make it hot for the rest of the gang. You can make individual bags using your favorite spices and herbs- a great party idea- everyone make their own concoction!
Anyway I thought you would like this recipe to try before the grilling season is over. It is a recipe that makes your taste buds stand up and salute!

Ideas by me;
Recipe is from Kingsford Charcoal.

How to Make Shrimp- It's in the Bag


  1. Rinse shrimp and place in a gallon size plastic freezer bag. Add the barbecue sauce and marinate, refrigerated, for one hour.
  2. In a brown paper bag or individual lunch sack, combine lemon pepper, parsley flakes, paprika, onion powder and chili powder.
    Do not use a recycled bag in this recipe.
  3. Remove shrimp from the marinade and discard marinade.Place shrimp on skewers.
    Grill the shrimp for 3 minutes,flip and grill another 2 minutes.
  4. Remove shrimp from skewers and place the hot shrimp into the paper bag or bags and toss to coat with the seasoning. Eat like popcorn out of the bag.
    I love that you can have all kinds of ingredients for your guests to make their own paper spice bag. This works great with chicken wings or drummets too!
