  • Thread shrimp on wooden skewers, running skewer through the body once near the tail and once near the head end of each shrimp so it looks like the letter C.
  • Brush the ghee over a grill. Lay shrimp skewers on a grill and cook 5-6 minutes while turning them around once in a while. Reserve the leftover liquid & spices for later.
  • When shrimps are done cooking, transfer the skewers to a plate spoon the remaining liquid over.
