Shrimply Irresistible

This is a recipe from the Crazy Plates cookbook.



3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce

2 tablespoons lime juice

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon ketchup

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

24 jumbo shrimp peeled


3/4 cup orange section (I use the mandarin oranges)

3/4 cup granny smith apple, peeled, cored and diced

2 tablespoons lime juice

2 green onions, white part only minced

1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped (or cilantro)

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions: 1.In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, olive oil, ketchup, garlic, coriander, and cumin. 2.Pour over shrimp in glass baking dish or ziploc bag. 3.Refrigerate 1 hour. Soak wooden skewers if you want to do skewers. (I find this the best). 4.Put all salsa ingredients in a food processor and pulse on and off until mixture is pureed. Put in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. 5.Remove shrimp from marinade and thread 4 pieces onto each skewer. 6.Grill over medium-high grill for 3 to 4 mins per side basting with extra marinade. 7.Serve and enjoy.
