#98 :: Ginger Lime Soy Shrimp

I thought this marinade smelled kinda funny and wasn't sure if I would like it or not. Then when Jamie dropped them onto the grill, the smell turned heavenly! I wasn't really sure what to pair this shrimp with, since it had such a variety of interesting ingredients in the we decided to put it on top of a simple salad of Romain lettuce and feta cheese. It was light and wonderful!


  • 2 large shallots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped (we used 1/2 tsp of ground ginger)
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds large shrimp, shells and tails on


Place shallots, ginger, garlic, soy, lime juice, and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the green onion and oil 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. Serve on brown paper bags, if desired.

Makes 8 servings
