Shrimp with Chili Paste

PREP AND COOK TIME: About 30 minutes

NOTES: Chilies are winners with shrimp in Sunset. This recipe appeared in August 1987.

MAKES: 4 or 5 servings

1/3 cup lemon juice 2 tablespoons salad oil 1 onion (1/2 lb.), chopped 1/2 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro 2 tablespoons minced garlic 1 tablespoon fresh ginger 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh jalapeno chilies 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt 1 1/2 pounds colossal shrimp (10 to 15 per lb.), shelled and de-veined Salt

1. In a blender or food processor, whirl lemon juice, oil, onion, cilantro, garlic, ginger, and chilies until smooth.

2. Mix 1/3 cup chili mixture with yogurt.

3. In a bowl, mix the remaining chili mixture with shrimp and let stand at least 10 or up to 30 minutes, then thread shrimp onto metal skewers.

4. Prepare barbecue for direct heat (page 96, step 1). When grill is hot (step 2) lay skewered shrimp on it. Turn to cook shrimp evenly until they are opaque but still moist-looking in thickest part (cut to test), 5 to 8 minutes.
