    This is another recipe from the Luau article in Sunset's June 2009 issue. The suggested servings for 12 people is for finger food portions allowing 2 6" skewers per person; for a main dish you can use larger skewers and it will serve 4-6 people.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium bowl, combine ginger, garlic, lime zest and juice, and coconut milk.
    2. 2
      Add shrimp, tossing to coat, and chill, covered, at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, prepare your wooden skewers by soaking in water. For finger food/party portions, you'll want 24 6" skewers. Use about 12 long skewers if you're serving on dinner plates.
    4. 4
      Prepare a grill for high heat (450° to 550°; you can hold your hand 5 inches above cooking grate only 2 to 4 seconds).
    5. 5
      Spear 2 or 3 shrimp onto each 6" skewer in a "C" shape (through each end); cook, turning once, until flesh has just turned pink and is slightly charred, about 3 minutes on each side.
    6. 6
      Arrange skewers on a serving platter and sprinkle evenly with salt, a squeeze of lime juice, and coconut. Serve with extra lime wedges on the side.
