PowerXL Smokeless Grill (Review) and Skinny Grilled Shrimp Scampi Skewers

I was recently asked to try the PowerXL Smokeless Grill. Although this is not a paid sponsored post, they did give me one to try. I thought I’d share my thoughts. Plus, be sure to check out my new recipe below for Skinny Grilled Shrimp Scampi Skewers!

I really do like this grill!  First, I love the fact that you can grill your favorite foods, indoors all year round. It does cook faster and healthier without compromising on flavor. And, the PowerXL Smokeless Grill is very versatile and it can be transformed into a griddle. I actually prefer using the griddle pan for grilling most things since it makes clean-up a breeze. That’s what I did with my shrimp recipe, below. Happily, both surfaces are nonstick so the grill pan is fairly easy to clean too.


Here are some of the major features: 

*Air Flow Technology & Smoke-Capture Fan lets you grill without smoke. That means it can lock down the smell as well as the smoke, which is a wonderful feature when grilling indoors. 

*Quickly heats up to 450° F and maintains a constant temperature – no hot spots

*Cerami-Tech Non-Stick Coating means nothing sticks! So little or no oil is required.

*Removable grill plate and drip tray are both dishwashers safe for easy cleanup.

*Grill up to four large steaks, cook up to six juicy burgers, or barbeque eight pieces of chicken at once on the large grilling surface.

*Glass Lid so you can see what you’re grilling


The PowerXL Smokeless Grill is available as a complete indoor grilling set ($119.85) and can be purchased on their website: https://www.powerxlproducts.com/kitchen/indoor-grills.html.

Skinny Grilled Shrimp Scampi Skewers


So easy and sooo good…This shrimp recipe cooks very quickly to perfection on The PowerXL Smokeless Grill!


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes


Ingredients

3 tablespoons reduced-fat butter

1 tablespoon garlic, minced

2 wood skewers

½ pound frozen extra large jumbo shrimp, (peeled, deveined) defrosted, see shopping tips or use fresh

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 lemon, halved


Instructions

1. Preheat grill to 400 degrees. I used the griddle pan but you can also use the grill plate.

2. In a small dish, add butter and garlic. Cover, and melt butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Be sure to cover the dish with a plate so the butter doesn’t spray everywhere.

3. Thread defrosted shrimp onto 2 skewers; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Brush with 2 tablespoons butter/garlic mixture. Add skewers to the griddle pan and cook, turning occasionally, until the shrimps are pink and opaque for about 3-4 minutes. Serve immediately, drizzled with remaining butter mixture, garnished with lemons and parsley, if desired.

Makes 2 servings


Shopping Tips

Most supermarkets sell a few brands of frozen shrimp. I used Water Front Bistro raw extra large jumbo shrimp with tails on (peeled & deveined). You can use large instead with or without the tails. Use 4 ounces of shrimp per serving.
