Ingredients

1/4 cup smoked sweet paprika

2 tablespoons ancho chili powder

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 pounds (21 to 24) large shrimp, shell on

6 tablespoons canola oil, divided

12 cloves coarsely chopped fresh garlic, divided

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion

Directions

  1. Whisk together the paprika, ancho powder, brown sugar, cumin, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Place the shrimp in a large bowl, add the spice rub and stir well to coat each shrimp.
  3. Heat your grill to high. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil on the grates of the grill over high heat in a large cast iron or saute pan; add half of the shrimp and half of the garlic and cook until just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in half of the green onions and transfer to a large platter or turn out onto brown paper bags. Wipe out of the pan with paper towels, and repeat with the remaining ingredients.
