My mother in law is super good about the fact that the only meat I eat is seafood. She is always trying out recipes that she finds on us when we come for dinner and this is one of my favorites that she's made.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag.
  2. Add shrimp to the bag and marinade 1-2 hours.
  3. Skwer the shrimp on water-soaked bamboo skwers (about 4-5 per skwer).

  5. Enjoy!

This is easy and delicious. I cut the amounts in half for three people, and I assumed rice wine meant rice wine vinegar. It turned out great. I skewered them and cooked them in a grill pan on the stove. Very nice flavor. Made for the Spring 07 PAC event. Thanks for posting!

This is a easy and quick marinade. The blend of ginger and garlic along with the sesame oil makes for a great tasting shrimp. The only change I made to the recipe as posted as substituting sherry for the rice wine. This was the suggestion from Zaar and it worked out great. Thanks for posting a great recipe.
