FOOD & BEVERAGE The Chef’s Corner
With the cold weather finally behind us, it’s great to enjoy the warmth and fun of the summer months. At the Club, we will be celebrating summer as usual in the Tiger Bar & Grill with fresh summer favorites like lobster rolls, barbecue specials, and soft shell crabs. Grilling has always been my favorite method of summertime cooking, and here at the Club I’m lucky enough to be able to do it year round. Grilling gives great flavor to everything from fish to vegetables. Here is a recipe for one of my favorite summertime dishes: grilled shrimp with ice cold gazpacho. I hope you will use it for your next summertime gathering with family and friends.
Grilled Shrimp Skewers

Bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 15 to 30 minutes

Combine all of the ingredients and marinate shrimp for about 3 hours.
Remove the shrimp from the marinade, and skewer onto bamboo. Grill the shrimp for about 2 ½ minutes on each side over medium-high heat on either an outdoor grill or a stove-top grill pan.
