    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    This wonderful gingery-garlic shrimp dish is served cold, and is a nice change from the usual "cocktail" shrimp. The directions listed below use 1 1/2 lb UNCOOKED shrimp, but this can be easily made using shrimp that's already cleaned as well as cooked. After the oil, garlic and ginger are heated, you may toss the already cooked shrimp in the pan and heat for a minute or two before tossing them with the other ingredients and chilling in the fridge. Cook time does not include time to chill.

      Excellent! I made it for a party in place of your standard Shrimp Cocktail. I used the 31-40 count shrimp but cut them in half to strech it out. I added more chili oil and some pepper flakes. In my trial run I roasted my own bell pepper for part, and used bottled for part and couldn't tell the difference except it was easier buying them done. I'll use this again!

      A really fresh and flavourful dish! We served it in scallop shells which looked great! Too bad the batteries of the borrowed camera were empty! But maybe next time... We peeled the red pepper after roasting and used smaller shrimps than on the picture by Kozmic Blues. Thank you very much for this recipe. We will probably do it again next week for a party.
