Spicy Sesame Grilled Shrimp

Yields: Serves 4


  • 1 tsp. Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tsp. oyster sauce
  • 4 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar 
  • Asian Chili Oil or hot sauce, to taste
  • 1 pound large raw shrimp — peeled and cleaned


  1. Combine the five-spice powder, ginger, garlic, oyster sauce, sesame oil, vinegar and chili oil, to taste. Whisk to combine, then add the shrimp and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat your Twin Eagles Barbecue to high heat. Shake any excess marinade from the shrimp and place them onto metal skewers, or bamboo skewers that have been pre-soaked in water for 30 minutes to avoid burning.
  3. Grill the shrimp for 2 minutes on each side, or until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through.
