If you know, me, you know that shrimp is another one of my favorite foods. For parties, my mom used to send my dad to pick the shrimp up about 15 minutes before the party because she knew if she didn’t, they would be all gone. I got this great recipe from FoodNetwork.com to boost the flavor of my shrimp! I made half a recipe and had enough shrimp for multiple meals, which is a wonder since I eat them like candy.
1 large shallots, peeled and chopped
1/2 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 garlic cloves, smashed
1/3 cup light soy sauce
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 TBSP sugar (I used Splenda, but use 2 TSP if using)
1/8 cup chopped green onions
1/8 cup peanut oil (I actually didn’t use)
1/8 TSP coarsely ground black pepper
1 pound large shrimp, deveined and tails off
Place shallots, ginger, garlic, soy, lime juice, and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth.
Add the green onion and oil (if using) 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 and grill for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side
I served my shrimp over some quinoa I had made for a previous night’s meal and topped it with some parmesan cheese.
YUMO as Rachael Ray would say!
