Recipe by Manami

"The marinade for these shrimp is a piquant mix of lemon juice, garlic, ginger, basil and parsely - which would taste just as wonderful with chicken or pork. The dipping sauce is almost chutney-like with chunks of whole tomatoes, lemongrass and lime juice add tang." Chef Kerry Simon is the creator of this dish - F&W Newsletter - October, 2009. When we made these for a small group - we served it with herbed angel hair pasta with Parmesan and a green leafy salad.It takes 2 hours to marinate - we prepared it early in the day and served it about 3 o'clock - absolutely wonderful! ;)
