Shrimp cooked on the smoker. There’s nothing like the added flavor of smoked wood to take the flavor of shrimp up a couple of notches! But we don’t stop there!
We’ll dip it in butter, then roll it in a perfect blend of finely crushed walnuts, coconut, minced onions and garlic! Are you starting to drool yet? I am just writing about it!
This was so incredibly good. This is just as good, if not better than anything you’ll order and pay a small fortune for at a fancy restaurant!
Smoked Nutty-Coconut Garlic & Onion Shrimp
- 1/2 lb. large uncooked shrimp (16 - 20)
- 1/4 cup butter (I used 57% less fat Promise sticks)
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/4 cup coconut (finely shredded)
- 1 Tablespoon minced onions
- 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
- Rinse shrimp and remove the entire shell, (including the tail), and place these into a bowl.
- Melt the butter and pour over the shrimp to coat.
- Crush the walnuts so they are very fine pieces. I put the walnut pieces into a ziploc baggie and used a rolling pin.
- Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly in a bowl and place them on a plate for coating the shrimp. Coat the shrimp with a generous amount of the mixture and place into a container.
- Get your smoker set up and bring it up to 250° F. (Note: I used apple wood for this!) Once settled in at temperature, place the shrimp on a grill screen, or something similar, and place into the smoker. Maintain the 250° F temperature and cook for 20 minutes. Check them at 15 minutes. They should be getting very close to being done.
