Gourmet July 2009 Hot-wing aficionados will flip for these grilled shrimp, seasoned with bottled hot sauce and melted butter. Crunchy celery and homemade blue cheese dip are deliciously de rigueur accompaniments. Update: I made July 4th and they were a big hit. I will keep shrimp in freezer and Franks Red Hot Sauce on hand for and easy quick appetizer. I will also keep Litehouse blue cheese dressing on hand for the dip. Quick, easy and simple.

  2. Make shrimp: Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium heat for gas); see Grilling Procedure . Toss shrimp with oil and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Oil grill rack, then grill shrimp, covered only if using a gas grill, turning once, until just cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes total. Stir together butter and hot sauce in a large bowl.
