    Chef Kate's Note:

    A great grilled shrimp popular from the coast of Ecuador up through the southern Pacific coast of Mexico. Serve it with fluffy rice, lime wedges, pureed avocado and, of course, some 'aji' - the ubiquitous condiment always on Ecuadorean tables. Cooking time is actually marinating time.

      I didn't thread mine onto skewers beause I didn't have time, just drained off the marinade into a hot hot fry pan, let the rum/ginger/honey reduce down and get a little sticky in the pan and then threw in the shrip for a short sweet burst to cook though.. GREAT! I did use slightly less honey than called for and rather more fresh grated ginger (because I peeled and grated and THEN looked at the amount needed, and saw that it was much less what lay before me.. never mind we love ginger so in it went! We are not dissapointed.. this was tasty indeed. Please see my Rating System: 4 excellent stars ... Thanks!

      This is so easy and delicious. I let my marinade overnight. I thought the rum might over power the hoey and ginger but it turned out great!

      Wonderful taste & easy to prepare. I followed the recipe, cooking in a saute pan, then added back some of the marinade & thickened with 1 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 1tbsp water. This made a lovely sauce that was soaked up by the rice. Thanks Kate for a hit. Made for ZWT4
