Here's another quick take on a recipe I saw that looked pretty simple and delicious. You'll need a grill and a food processor, but the whole recipe shoul only take you about 30 mins from start to finish. It's always been easier to marinate shrimp pretty quickly compared to other meats. This recipe only requires you to marinate the shrimp for even 10 mins just to get the flavors to be infused.

8 garlic cloves
1 3" piece of ginger, peeled
1/3 cup of orange juice
1/3 cup of lime juice
1 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp of vinegar
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1/2 tsp. of turmeric
1.5 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
canola spray (or oil)
salt and pepper

Preparation: Serves 4
  • Prep the grill on medium heat
  • In a food processor, pulse the garlic,lime and orange juice, sugar, vinegar and turmeric until smooth. then pour in the oil
  • Pour 1/2 of the sauce in separate bowl and season with salt and pepper and set aside. Remaining sauce should poured into a bowl with the shrimp. Toss to coat.
  • Spray canola oil or oil the grill grate and arrange the shrimp on the grill until they are bright pink with some grill marks, which should only be 1-2 mins per side.
  • Serve with rice, place shrimp on top and top with the turmeric sauce
