To avoid the hassle of removing the shells, we went with peeled shrimp for our broiled shrimp recipe and then crammed them onto a skewer, which prevented them from overcooking.

Serves 4 as a main course, 6 as an appetizer

To fit all of the shrimp under the broiler at once, you’ll need three 14-inch metal skewers. (Wooden skewers will likely burn.) Serve with grilled crusty bread brushed with olive oil as an appetizer; add rice salad or couscous for a main course.
