If it were me I would be running a Cat 6 cable out to the shop and be done, leaving a few extra feet of coil on each end incase you need to repair a damaged end etc. This way you will have an up-gradable link between the two. Also, I'd definitely run a GOOD surge protector for the reason of lightning strike as mentioned above. This will give you the ability to use your spare router as a shop network or potentially create it as an access point.

I would also bury a CAT6, if that isnt an option, I use propellers sometimes at work in a point to point configuration (router in house to propeller out to propeller on shop which is connected to a switch)

One at each end is uber important. I wouldn't put copper in the ground, or even arial, without REALLY good and properly grounded surge surpressors at both ends.

Do you have any cable currently running between the house and shop?

If you do have to bury a cable, run it in at least 3/4" pvc with a rope with it in case you need to pull another cable. It's also a good idea to pull a ground wire in with it

Not directly, but there are coax cables run to a common point for a dish setup.

Sounds like a Ethernet cable run is what you need
