DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the onion, garlic, oil, and fish sauce in a bowl large enough to hold the shrimp.
  • Add the shrimp, toss to coat evenly, and marinate, covered, at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Soak the wooden skewers in water for 20-30 minutes.
  • Prepare grill or preheat broiler.
  • To prepare the dip, mix together the lime juice, pepper, salt, fish sauce, and sugar, in a small bowl, mixing well; adjust seasonings to taste (add a little water or sugar if dip seems too tart).
  • Thread shrimp onto wooden skewers; lightly coat each finished skewer with oil or cooking spray, and place on grill over medium coals or heat (or place on pan under broiler), and cook approximately 5 minutes, turning once, or until shrimps are pink, firm, and slightly charred in spots.
  • Serve shrimp with the dipping sauce.
  • A good accompaniment would be steamed rice, or an Asian noodle dish.
