This is a recipe that my husband gave me that he got from some family friends growing up in St.Pete. Leaving the shells on the shrimp while grilling makes the shrimp nice and moist.

Melissa is so right! By keeping the shells on the shrimp while they grill you'll end up with a wonderfully moist finished product. Thanks for the great tip!

And for those of you who like a little less spice, you can easily cut back or eliminate the cayenne. The flavor is still great! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
