Whenever summertime comes around, I look forward to making this shrimp recipe on our outdoor grill. I've served this to guests, alongside a nice green salad and a pitcher of margaritas. Simple and delicious.
Note: You can try broiling the shrimp in your oven for about 8 minutes instead of grilling but I have never personally tried them that way.
Prep time includes marinating in the refrigerator.
This is an all-purpose marinade used at The Black Dog Restaurant in Martha's Vineyard. I love it on chicken but you could also use it over meat, vegetables or fish. If using it on white fish, omit the red wine vinegar. It's great for grilling.
We watched these being cooked right by our table while in Huatulco. The smell when the marinade was brushed on the jumbo shrimp while on the grill filled the air - so good! This is our version. Enjoy!
**Preparation time includes 30 minute marinading time
(****edit June 25/07 - it was suggested that lime juice would be good instead of lemon juice so I tried it out and I prefer it that way. Thank you for that!)
***NOTE : ) Aug. 7/10 - discovered an even better way to enjoy this recipe! Ran out of skewers so just threw the prawns with all the marinade into a foil pan and threw that on the bbq stirring and turning for about 5 to 7 minutes (depending on size of your prawns). They turned out wonderfully moist and tasty and the resulting sauce was fabulous to dip a crusty bread onto. The sauce is also very tasty ladled on top of linguine. So fast and easy. Cuts the prep time down to basically nothing.
This is a great recipe for when a light flavourful meal is what you want. It's quick & easy enough for weekday meals and nice enough for company.
It's a recipe I adapted from one found in the Costco Connection by Karen MacNeil.
This is a recipe I adapted from a book called "Thai Cooking and More." Excellent cookbook. I've deleted a couple ingredients,changed some and added others from the original recipe. This dish is more flavourful than hot so don't be afraid of it. Serve it with rice, asparagus or broccoli and a crusty baquette. You can find the ingrediants with the soy sauce in the Asian Specialty section at the grocer. They come in small jars. My favourite hot chili paste is Sombel Oelek - no sugars added.
Found in The Wichita Eagle (of all places!). Adapted from "The Vineyard Cookbook" by Barbara Scott-Goodman. Am stashin' this as I suspect it will do well with summer bounty down here - mackerel, tuna, bluefish & maybe even flounder on the grill. Could easily go under the broiler as well for the grilles (get a hibachi!).
Plan to serve with char grilled garden tomatoes, zucchini & peppers and either fresh roasted corn in the husks or a spicy potato salad.
