Ginger-Soy-Lime Marinated Shrimp
Serves 8

2 large shallots, peeled and chopped
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped

¾ cup soy sauce
½ cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons sugar
¼ cup chopped green onions
¼ cup peanut oil

2 pounds large shrimp, shells and tails on

Place shallots, ginger, garlic, soy, lime juice, and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the green onion and oil and blend until combined. Season with black pepper, to taste. Place shrimp in a large bowl, pour the marinade over, and let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Preheat a grill to high. Remove shrimp from the marinade and grill for 1 ½ to 2 minutes per side. Serve on brown paper bags, if desired.
