    Spicy Garlic Paste Ingredients

    The garlic paste adheres perfectly to the shells and will coat your fingers as you peel and eat the grilled shrimp… yummm

    • 4 cloves of garlic, minced or grated
    • To make a paste, drag a chef knife thru the salt and minced garlic over and over until a paste is created
    • 2 teaspoons of Himalayan Salt*
    • 1 ½ teaspoons of Dizzy Pig’s Jamaican Firewalk*
    • 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

    Directions for Spicy Garlic Paste

    To make the garlic paste you have 2 options.

    • If you have a fine grater you can grate the garlic gloves & mix with salt, stirring to create a paste as the salt drys out the garlic and creates a paste
    • You can mince garlic, mix with salt and drag blade of a chef’s knife back and forth over the salt and minced garlic putting fair amount of pressure on mixture to make a paste as salt works to break down garlic and knife pressure breaks minced garlic into paste
    • After garlic has formed paste add remaining ingredients
    • Coat the shrimp well with garlic paste
    • Lightly oil skewers and thread seasoned shrimp onto Double Pronged Skewers*
