    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Easy and Delicious! Spicy tomato jam is a popular Moroccan condiment that is wonderful with grilled shrimp. I like my jam with some texture, so I skip the puree part. Serve with couscous. Lemon-herb couscous or apricot couscous are great choices. This dish pairs perfectly with a full, aromatic white, such as a Viognier or Gewurztraminer. Also goes well with, Lageder Pinot Bianco, 2002 - a Northern Italian white wine. Jam simmers for an hour and the shrimp marinate for 30 minutes, so plan accordingly.

    1. 1
      Melt butter in a saucepan over moderately high head. Add ginger and garlic and stir until fragrant. Add vinegar, optional sherry and cinnamon stick and stir until it resembles a glaze (one minute or so). Stir in tomatoes, sugar, cumin, cayenne and cloves. Reduce to low and simmer about 1 hour, until liquid has evaporated. Discard the cinnamon.
    2. 2
      Stir in honey, salt and black pepper. Use a food processor or blender and puree, if you you like. Let cool.
    3. 3
      Light a grill or preheat the broiler.
    4. 4
      Cover shrimp with 1/3 - 1/2 of the COOLED tomato jam and marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature. Set the remaining jam aside.
    5. 5
      Grill shrimp for about 2 minutes per side. They should be lightly charred on the outside and opaque throughout.
    6. 6
      Spoon extra jam over shrimp to taste.

      Gorgeous :) The jam is fantastic and would be a good marinade for pretty much anything. Will make this again.
