Chile Ginger Shrimp

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 6 large shrimp)
Grill High Heat

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 serrano chiles, seeded and minced
1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
12 large wild-caught 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!
