Originally created for a prince, this recipe for grilled chicken “wings” now featured on the menu of LAZO with Don Strange is royally delicious.

This quick-and-easy grill recipe delivers the flavors of a classic shrimp boil on a convenient summer-ready skewer. When grilling shrimp, make sure your grates are super clean. This will give you the best grill marks and ensure that the shrimp don’t stick to the grate. We like to serve these skewers with charred lemons for squeezing and grilled bread for sopping up all of the delicious garlicky Old Bay butter.
