  • 3 garlic cloves, roasted
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. smoked paprika
  • ¼ lb. unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp. sherry vinegar

Herb Salsa Verde Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped fresh herbs (basil, parsley, cilantro, oregano)
  • 1 tbsp. chopped capers
  • 1 tsp. reserved juice from capers
  • ½ tsp. lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp. chili flakes
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Herb Salsa Verde Instructions

Shrimp Linguica Skewers Ingredients

  • 4 – 12” bamboo or metal skewers (bamboo soak in water for at least an hour)
  • 16 each wild caught shrimp, U/12 size, head off, tail on, peeled and deveined
  • 16 slices Linguica Sausage, ½”- ¾” thick
  • 2 tbsp. blended olive oil or canola oil
  • 4 tbsp. smoked tomato butter
  • 2 tbsp. herb salsa verde
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Shrimp Linguica Skewers Instructions

Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 375°F/191°C.

Place a slice of Linguica sausage in the center of the shrimp; the shrimp will curl around the coin of sausage. Poke the skewer through the top of the shrimp, through the sausage and into the other end of the shrimp. The shrimp and sausage need to hold tightly on the skewer. Continue to complete the skewers, 2-3 shrimp and Linguica slices per skewer.

Brush the shrimp skewers lightly with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the skewers for approximately 6 minutes, turning them halfway through for desired grill markings and even cooking. Brush the skewers with the soft smoked tomato butter. Close the lid and cook for approximately 2 minutes.

With tongs, remove the skewers from the grill and spoon the herb salsa verde over the skewers.
