4 tablespoons garlic powder

8 tablespoons bronzing seasoning

1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  3. Heat griddle to medium-high.
  4. Cook shrimp on griddle, stirring frequently. Cook until shrimp are pink and seasoning becomes crusty.

Cook’s Note

*"Pants on" shrimp refers to peeling the shrimp and removing all but the last segment of the shell that contains the tail. This makes a nice presentation and provides a "handle" for eating the shrimp. The meat will pop out of the tail section with a gentle squeeze.
