Here’s another great recipe for the grill. The original called for basic shrimp with a spicy cilantro chili sauce, but I decided to do away with the sauce and marinate the shrimp with the ingredients instead. The grilled chilis give this dish a nice kick, and the olive oil will smoke over the fire adding the flavor to the shrimp. I tossed some asparagus in the basket too just to incorporate a veggie into the meal.
1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined
6 Tbsp fish sauce
4 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp turmeric
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
2-3 serrano chilis, minced
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 1″ pieces ginger, peeled and minced
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Combine all ingredients except shrimp in a medium bowl and whisk to incorporate. Add shrimp and stir until it is all coated in the marinade. Let stand on the counter for at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium heat. Cook shrimp in a grill basket, or on skewers just until they curl up and turn pink. If using skewers this will only take a couple of minutes on each side. If you use the basket you may have to stir them a few times. Serve alongside your favorite grill sides. Enjoy!
