After a long day of hiking, the last thing I want to do is attempt to prepare dinner in the woods. I was able to prepare this the day before, and then just make a fire to cook it up! I used frozen shrimp, which thawed overnight in the cooler, but ensured freshness.
2 dozen frozen, large, peeled shrimp
1/4 cup olive oil
5 garlic cloves – minced
1/4 cup white wine
1 tsp piri piri (or substitute chili powder)
Salt and Pepper
1. Before leaving on your camping trip, combine all ingredients in a ziplock bag. Keep shrimp frozen if you plan on using the next day, or defrost if you are going to use that night.
2. When ready to cook, build a hot fire to produce embers. Make a flat pile of them and place a flame resistant pot directly on them.
3. Add shrimp, stirring frequently. Depending on temperature, cook time may vary. Cook until shrimp curl and are pink, approximately 10 minutes.
