Several months ago, Jess visited the Filling Station at Chelsea Market and picked up a jar of Black Truffle Salt. Truffle as in the mushroom rather than the chocolate round stuff, although those a delicious too. Truffle seasoning is awesome on almost anything.
We took our first trip to Fairway Brooklyn in Red Hook – right where the Ikea is. They have a huge selection of items and a fresh selection of seafood. It’s a legitimate grocery store – something that’s hard to find around these parts. You can say that Fairway is like a Whole Foods and a regular grocery store combined – good and fresh selection of items but affordable.
Anyways, we got some shrimp and seasoned it with the Black Truffle Salt for a simple, yet flavorful dish. It was sooo good and our dinner guests loved them. Try it out for yourself – here’s the recipe below:
Grilled Truffled Shrimp Skewers Recipe
- ½ pound fresh jumbo shrimp (peeled and de-veined)
- ½ tsp Black Truffle Salt
- ¼ tsp Ground black pepper
- 1 tsp Olive Oil
- Skewers (soaked for 10 minutes)
Lightly season a the fresh jumbo shrimp with black truffle salt and black pepper. Adjust to tastes. Skewer shrimp with soaked skewers.
On medium-high heat, place skewered shrimp directly on the grill. Grill each side for about 7 minutes each. Use high heat if you like extra char. Turn the shrimp when the tails turn red orange.
