Want a super quick and tasty shrimp recipe? Well this is it! In the August 2010 issue of Sunset Magazine there are a couple of marinades that are "Perfect for Seafood". I'm trying them both and this is the first one. 7 ingredients, 15 minutes to marinade and 4-6 minutes of cook time. What could be easier or faster than that? And, oh by the way...it's full of flavor, too!
Serves 2 (serving size 5 large shrimp)
Grill High Heat
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 serrano chiles, seeded and minced
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
10 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
Mix all ingredients together in a glass bowl and allow shrimp to marinade for 15 minutes at room temperature. Grill shrimp for approximately 2 -3 minutes per side or until opaque.
You can serve as an appetizer, or over a nice cilantro-lime rice as an entree. The citrus comes through from the lemon and it's balanced by the slight heat of the serrano pepper - Yum!
