Nothing says summertime like firing up the grill! This recipe works great as an appetizer, or pair with a salad and use as a main couse. The marinade is versatile and can give any seafood or meat a delicious Asian flare.
GINGER-SOY-LIME MARINATED SHRIMP
2 large shallots, peeled and chopped
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic, smashed
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup peanut oil
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 pounds large shrimp
Place shallots, ginger, garlic, soy, lime juice, and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the green onion and oil and blend until combined. Season with black pepper, to taste. Place shrimp in a large bowl, pour the marinade over, and let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Preheat a grill to high. Remove shrimp from the marinade with slotted spoon. Place on grill pan and brush with sweet Thai chili sauce (we used May-Ploy brand).
Grill for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes per side.
And because we love sweet Thai chili sauce, we used it for dipping.
