Default Shrimp Cooked On The Engine

This is great because you'll have hot food immediately upon arrival, without waiting to fire up the grill.

Time Required: 15 minutes prep time, plus a 90 minute drive


1 pound shrimp, peeled and cleaned
Olive oil
Salt, pepper, Old Bay
2 pats butter
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons lime juice
Aluminum foil
1 car or truck


Lay out three layers of aluminum foil, big enough to wrap your shrimp
Brush the top layer with olive oil
Place shrimp in center of foil
Season with salt, pepper, and Old Bay
Add 2 pats of butter, 2 bay leaves, and 2 tablespoons of lime juice
Wrap tightly and refrigerate overnight to marinate
Drive your car for about 20 miles and pull over. Feel around the engine for the hottest spot.
Wedge the shrimp into the hottest part of the engine. You might need to ball up some extra foil to fill gaps.
Drive for about an hour. Your shrimp will be perfect!!
