FIERY SKEWERED SHRIMP
Here's an easy-to-make entrée flavored with a spicy marinade; the shrimp are nice on a bed of salad greens or with rice.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
16 uncooked jumbo shrimp, peeled, deveined
4 12-inch-long wooden skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Lemon or lime wedges
Mix olive oil, garlic, minced ginger and crushed red pepper in shallow dish. Add shrimp, turning to coat with oil mixture. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes or refrigerate up to 2 hours.
Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat) or preheat broiler. Thread 4 shrimp on each of 4 skewers. Grill or broil just until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Sprinkle shrimp with chopped cilantro. Garnish with lemon or lime and serve immediately.
