These Glazed New Orleans BBQ Shrimp & Sausage Kabobs are super easy, super fast, and super delicious. The tangy glaze adds so mush flavor and and kicks up the spice just a bit.

If you don’t want more heat, just reduce the amount of Crystals hot sauce. I didn’t get any complaints at all, the teenagers loved them too.

I’m definitely going to have to make these kabobs for dinner because we for sure didn’t get our fill. I’m thinking with some cheesy grits and hush puppies, or my Sweet Creamed Corn Casserole.

Either way will make for a perfect Sunday dinner. I may even skip the skewers if we don’t have company.

But, if you want to impress your guests they make an awesome presentation and will just about fly off that serving platter and get rave reviews.

I was using a small cast iron grill pan we had just picked up at the last minute to make these. I could do three kabobs at a time and still have enough room in the pan to flip them over to the other side.

As each kabob was finished, I moved it to a non-stick skillet, on the warming burner, to brush the glaze on because I didn’t want the glaze to get too sticky and burn in the grill pan.

You might need to adjust the heat for the grill pan depending on your stove. I think some of my grill marks were getting too dark.

Speaking of grill marks, I pressed down with tongs to get a little sizzle going. This made some turn out darker than others, but that little bit of char adds so much flavor. Patting the shrimp dry with paper towels before cooking them will also help get better grill marks on those.

Glazed New Orleans BBQ Shrimp & Sausage Kabobs

Glazed New Orleans BBQ Shrimp & Sausage Kabobs

Yield: About 15 Skewers
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Glazed New Orleans BBQ Shrimp & Sausage Kabobs are kind of magical because they disappear before your eyes. I'm not kidding I set these out for a party and poof gone, all gobbled up.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb shrimp (we used shell on extra large 26-30)
  • 1 lb smoked Andouille sausage (cut the same thickness as the shrimp)

For the Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning (I used Tony Chachere)
  • 2 teaspoons Crystals Louisiana Hot Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Peel the shrimp, leaving only their tails attached.
  2. In a sauce pan combine Worcestershire, lemon juice, black peppers, Creole seasoning, and garlic. Cook over moderately high heat for a few minutes. Reduce heat to simmer and add hot sauce.
  3. Stir in butter, a few cubes at a time, stirring constantly and adding more only when butter is melted.
  4. Thread shrimp and sausage onto 4-inch-long skewers. Starting with "head" of the shrimp, then sausage, then through the tail of the shrimp (so sausage fits snug with the shrimp)
  5. Preheat the grill pan to medium high heat, adding a little oil.
  6. Grill skewers on each side for 2 minutes (until the shrimp is opaque and sausage has good grill marks), pressing down with tongs on each one for a few seconds.
  7. Move from grill pan to non-stick skillet or baking dish and brush on the glaze. Keep warm till ready to move serving platter.
