Step 1

Set your EGG for half direct and half indirect with the EGGspander convEGGtor Basket and a half convEGGtor stone at 375°F/190°C.

Step 2

Coat the shrimp with 1 tablespoon (15 ml) extra-virgin olive oil and Savory Pecan Seasoning; then thread them onto the bamboo skewers.

Step 3

Grease the roasting pan with a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil. Cut the squash into 1 1/2 inch (4 cm) rounds; coat with 2 tablespoons (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil and season with salt. Place the squash rounds into the roasting pan, and place on the indirect side of the EGG. Roast until tender, about 35-45 minutes. Remove from the EGG, and let rest for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Place the Cast Iron Skillet on the indirect side to preheat. Melt butter and a drizzle of olive oil; add garlic and shallots. Cook, stirring occasionally. Add the white wine and let the mixture cook down about 25%.

Step 5

Using a fork, shred the fleshy part of the squash into strands. Add the squash the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash is heated through, about 2-3 minutes. Chiffonade the basil, then add the basil and lemon juice to the skillet; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6

While the skillet mixture is heating, grill the shrimp for 2 minutes on each side on the direct side of the EGGspander convEGGtor Basket. Add the squash “noodles” to a bowl. Serve immediately, topped with shrimp and Parmesan.
