Posted on


36 large shrimp

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

1 tablespoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1/4 cup peanut oil, plus extra

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Steamed jasmine rice

Soak 4-inch wooden skewers in cold water for 1 hour. Thread 1 shrimp onto each skewer so that the shrimp lie flat. Whisk together the soy, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, white wine vinegar, lime juice and peanut oil together in a small bowl. Place shrimp skewers onto a plate and drizzle with extra peanut oil to lightly coat. Season with salt and pepper. Heat grill. Grill shrimp 2 minutes per side or until just cooked through. Place shrimp on a platter, drizzle with the sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with jasmine rice. Serves 6-8.
