From "Simply Shrimp, Salmon and (Fish) Steaks" by Leslie Glover Pendleton. This is the recipe on the cover of the book. Wish you could see it. Recipe states that these are tasty Southeast Asian-inspired shrimp that make an unusual hors d'oeuvre. Serve the sauce in individual pots when serving as a main course. Goes well with Basmati or jasmine rice. There is a marination of 30 minutes to 8 hours not included in the time.
