My mom clipped this recipe from a June 2000 edition of the Houston Chronicle. It's originally from a cookbook called "Off the Eaten Path: Inspired Recipes for Adventurous Cooks". This is a great, zesty grilled shrimp dish!

These are very spicy and packed full of yummy flavors...I agree with time I will crush the herbs...they were just a bit dominate in the dish...but gave great flavor...I just loved the sauce even through I couldn't get it to liquify...maybe because I cut the recipe in I just chopped it up finely and added a tad more lime juice...also to keep the fat down I omitted the oil and just squeezed more lime juice on the shrimp...thanks for posting...:)
