Last week I asked the Necessary Indulgences Facebook page
for shrimp ideas and @Griffin
told me about Steven Raichlen’s Green Lightning Shrimp.
The marinade is puréed cilantro, jalapeños, scallions, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, olive oil, and fresh lime juice.
Cook direct at ~500F for 2-3 minutes each side. (I used Key West Pink shrimp, so they look pink before and after they are cooked).
And then pour a Cilantro and Garlic Butter Sauce over them.
They were fantastic -- nice heat from the jalapeños.
*** The one thing I'll change next time is I won't add the lime juice to the marinade, I'll just add freshly squeezed lime juice to the shrimp after they cook. The acid from the lime broke-down the meat too much and caused it to be a tad mushy (the recipe calls for the shrimp to marinate for 30 minutes).
I'll definitely make this again... the marinade will be great on chicken, too.
