Before starting any food preparation, it's important to start your fire! To achieve a hot bed of coals, you’ll want to allow several logs to burn down. Alternatively, use the Coal Bed in your Takibi Fire & Grill, and fill to the top with briquettes. Whatever you decide, it’s important that your fireplace is full of hot, simmering logs or coals, and not large flames.
Once your fire is burning, it’s time to prep the ingredients. First, combine all the ingredients for the remoulade sauce in a bowl. Mix until combined, then cover the bowl and place inside the cooler to keep the sauce cold. Then, before preparing the shrimp, set your wooden skewers in a bowl of shallow water to soak. De-shell and devein the shrimp, coat them thoroughly and set aside. In another bowl, combine all the spices (black pepper, cayenne, salt and paprika), then spread the mixture over the shrimp until all are evenly coated. Place the seasoned shrimp on the damp skewers, then place on the grill.
Grill the shrimp until they’re perfectly pink, then remove from the grill and set aside. Once the shrimp are finished grilling, pull them off the skewers and begin to assemble the sandwiches. Spread the remoulade sauce over one half of the sliced French loaf, then add the shrimp and top with the lettuce, tomatoes and dill pickles.
