    This sweet and spicy shrimp will keep you coming back for more. It's seductively simple but very flavorful. It goes very well with blackeyed peas and rice!


    • 2 1/2 pounds large to extra large shrimp
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 4 scallions, minced (green and white)
    • 2 Tbsp fresh minced ginger
    • 1-2 Jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
    • 4 Tbsp Soy Sauce
    • 4 Tbsp Honey
    • 3 Tbsp peanut oil


    1. Rinse, shell, and devein the shrimp.
    2. In a large bowl, combine the garlic, scallions, ginger, chile, soy sauce, honey, and peanut oil and whisk to mix. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and let marinate 1 hour.
    3. Preheat grill to high.
    4. Put the shrimp on skewers, in a basket, or be authentic and skewer with sugar cane skewers (I never do this).
    5. Grill the shrimp roughly 3 minutes per side until nicely browned and maybe even slightly charred, pouring any additional marinade over the shrimp when you turn them.
    6. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately.
