Cane Pole Dance: Haha!

Hope y'all had a great weekend! We took our Fritter Chick in Training to the beach with her grandma on St. Simons this weekend. That was an adventure in itself. You know you are getting old when, after you buckle in your child, you have to buckle in your mother as well. Time goes by fast so dance while you can and do not wait for tomorrow to do what you wanted to today! Fritter Chicks, once you try this recipe it will make you want to jump up on the pole and do a dance. Let us rephrase that, grab your fishing/cane pole and do a dance!

Cane Pole Shrimp

8 fresh rosemary sprigs, about 6 inches long
1/2 cup apricot marmalade
1/2 cup flaked coconut, chopped
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
1-1/2 pounds large raw shrimp, peeled

Soak rosemary sprigs in water for 30 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the marmalade, coconut, pepper flakes and minced rosemary; set aside 1/4 cup for serving.

Spray your grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Thread shrimp onto rosemary sprigs. Grill for 4 minutes. Turn and coat with some of the remaining marmalade mixture. Grill 3-4 minutes longer or until shrimp turn pink and then coat them again. Serve with remaining marmalade mixture.

Yep! I am a FRITTER CHICK! Born in Tennessee and now residing in South Carolina. I know all about the good 'ol Southern lifestyle! Wouldn't trade it for anything.
Stoppin' by from SITS and wanted to say, Howdy! ;)
