How To Prepare The Tri-Tip and Shrimp Boil Skewers

The recipe starts by preparing the vegetables on the grill, giving them a smoky and slightly charred taste. Baby potatoes and shucked corn are tossed in oil and cooked until parboiled and just fork tender, infusing them with a delightful texture and flavour. The addition of minced garlic, Old Bay seasoning, Creole seasoning, and Cajun seasoning provides a zesty and aromatic punch to the dish, complementing the natural sweetness of the vegetables.

Once the vegetables are ready, the shrimp, tri-tip, corn, and potatoes are carefully threaded onto skewers, creating a visually appealing presentation. These skewers are then grilled to perfection, with the corn becoming tender and the shrimp turning opaque and reaching an internal temperature of 165°F, ensuring both taste and food safety. While the skewers cook, a delightful garlic butter sauce is prepared by combining melted butter, minced garlic, fresh parsley, lemon juice, and a touch of black pepper. This buttery mixture adds richness and a burst of flavour to the skewers, enhancing the overall taste and juiciness of the meat and vegetables. Basted on both sides, these Tri-Tip and Shrimp Boil Skewers are now ready to be served, offering a delectable and satisfying meal that combines the best of seafood and meat in every bite.
