Grab some fresh shrimp, fire up your grills and get ready to impress your taste-buds!  These Paradisi Grilled Shrimp came to be because I forgot to pick up a lemon on the way home.  I looked at all the citrus fruits we did have and decided to give grapefruit a whirl.  What a whirl my simple seasoned grapefruit and butter sauce created!  You get just a hit of a tangy punch coupled with some yummy butter and just enough spice to bring it all together with the grilled shrimp flavor.  Wonderful and easy!  Enjoy!

1 lb gulf shrimp (tail on)
2 1/2 tsp Francis' essence (seafood variation)
2 tbsp olive oil (for brushing grill grate)

Brushing Sauce
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 tsp essence

Brushing Sauce
Melt butter, then whisk in grapefruit juice and essence until even.

Rub essence (seafood variation) onto both sides of the shrimp, string on skewers, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.

Preheat grill to medium heat. (You may want to get a spray bottle full of water ready for the inevitable flare ups from the butter dripping into the flames.)

Lightly brush heated grates with oil. Brush both sides of the shrimp with the brushing sauce, lay onto grill grate and cook for 5 minutes.  Brush the shrimp, flip them, brush them again and let cook another 5 minutes or until cooked through.  Brush the shrimp one last time before removing from grill and then serve hot!  They are great on there own, with a little sweet and sour sauce or with a little of Zo's Apricot BBQ Sauce.  Enjoy!
