Spicy Asian Shrimp

This shrimp recipe is great on the grill but equally good in the oven.  Don’t shy away from shrimp just because it is winter and you can’t grill.  Just use the oven.   Also, try this recipe with chicken – it is wonderful too!

Spicy Asian Shrimp

2 lbs. shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 t hot sauce (I used 1/2 t of  Ghost Pepper sauce)

3 cloves of garlic, finely minced

1 1/2 t Five-Spice powder

1 1/2 t ginger, finely minced

2 T rice wine vinegar

1 t fish sauce

2 t sesame oil

In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients (except the shrimp).  Add the shrimp and coat well.  Cover and refrigerate to marinate.  Try to let this marinate for at least 1 hour.

Grill until the shrimp are cooked through, about 2 minutes per side depending on the size.

Serve on a bed of fresh greens or with Grilled Veggie Salad.
