It takes about 10 minutes to prep & less than 10 to cook.

serve with a salad and pasta to complete the meal.

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Add lime juice, garlic, ginger, shallot, cilantro, red pepper flakes, salt & pepper to medium bowl.  Add olive oil while whisking.

Add shrimp to skewer. (soak wooden skewers in water before skewing)  Lay skewers in rimmed ceramic baking dish and cover with marinade.
