Cook Time10 Minutes
Ingredients
1 1/4 lb. peeled and deveined large shrimp
2 tsp. Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing, Seasoning and Recipe Mix Shaker
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup prepared pesto, plus more for serving
Wooden skewers, soaked for at least 20 minutes
Directions

Food Prep

  • In a large bowl, combine your shrimp, Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing, Seasoning and Recipe Mix Shake and olive oil. Toss to coat evenly.
  • Then, for an easier cook, thread 4–5 shrimp on each skewer.

Grill Prep

  • Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets
  • Method: Direct-Heat Grilling
  • Temp: 450°F (High Heat)

The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.
  • Brush your shrimp evenly with the pesto, then place your skewers on the grate. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side until your shrimp reaches an internal temperature of 145ºF. Your shrimp should look opaque and cooked through.
  • Serve immediately with additional pesto or ranch dressing if desired.
