DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, combine ginger, garlic, lime zest and juice, and coconut milk.
  • Add shrimp, tossing to coat, and chill, covered, at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.
  • Meanwhile, prepare your wooden skewers by soaking in water. For finger food/party portions, you'll want 24 6" skewers. Use about 12 long skewers if you're serving on dinner plates.
  • Prepare a grill for high heat (450° to 550°; you can hold your hand 5 inches above cooking grate only 2 to 4 seconds).
  • Spear 2 or 3 shrimp onto each 6" skewer in a "C" shape (through each end); cook, turning once, until flesh has just turned pink and is slightly charred, about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Arrange skewers on a serving platter and sprinkle evenly with salt, a squeeze of lime juice, and coconut. Serve with extra lime wedges on the side.
