  1. Pat shrimp dry and place in a mixing bowl with the vegetable oil and Savvy Goose Smoked Grilling Seasoning.
  2. Toss and allow to marinate 1 hour.

  1. Whisk together peanut butter and water until smooth.

Savvy Note: While it is is possible to make the sauce with chunky peanut butter, using the smooth style will result in a creamier and more emulsified sauce.
