    diner524's Note:

    Another recipe posted for ZWT Australia from "The Barbecue! Bible" by Steven Raichlen and here is the description: "Shrimp "on the barbie," aka grill, is Australia's most famous culinary export. Even if you know nothing else about Down Under cooking, you're surely aware of how much Australians love grilling-especially seafood. If the truth be told, shrimp is something of a misnomer, as most Australians would say "prawns." The Chinese roots of this dish are obvious-a legacy of the huge influx of Asian immigrants to Australia in the 1970s and 80s. I love the way the sweetness of the honey and five-spice powder play off the nuttiness of the sesame seeds and sesame oil and the brininess of the shrimp and soy sauce."

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse the shrimp under cold running water, then drain and blot dry with paper towels. Set aside while you prepare the marinade.
    2. 2
      Combine three tablespoons of the sesame oil, the rice wine, soy sauce, honey, sesame seeds, chile sauce (if using), and five-spice powder in a large bowl and whisk to blend. Stir in the garlic, ginger, scallions, and shrimp to coat, then cover and let marinate in the refrigerator, for 30 to 60 minutes.
    3. 3
      Preheat the grill to high.
    4. 4
      Using a slotted spoon, remove the shrimp from the marinade to a bowl and toss with the remaining 2 tablespoons sesame oil. Pour the marinade into a saucepan; remove and discard the garlic, ginger, and scallion whites, using the slotted spoon. Bring the marinade to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, uncovered, to a thick, syrupy glaze, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
    5. 5
      When ready to cook, oil the grate. Arrange the shrimp on the hot grate and grill, turning with tongs, until nicely browned on the outside and firm and pink inside, about 2 minutes per side. Brush the shrimp with the glaze as they cook.
    6. 6
      Transfer the shrimp to serving plates and or a platter and sprinkle with the scallion greens. Serve immediately.
    7. 7
      Note: Sweet chile sauce is the Thai version of ketchup. One good brand to look for is Siriacha. If not available, simply omit.

      Loved this recipe diner, it was so good, quick and easy to make, bbq perfectly, had loads of flavor, wonderful texture. The sauce was out of this world good. I freshly ground all my spices, to make chinese 5 spice powder, it worked really well in this dish, adding soft and subtle flavorings to a dynamite sauce. It was really nice to taste the different ingredients in the dish. Thanks so much for sharing another recipe that I will make often. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Australia
