Cholula Southern Grilled Shrimp

Cholula Southern Grilled Shrimp
From Cholula Hot Sauces

Printable Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes
Marinating time: 1-8 hours
Grill time: 5 minutes
Serves 3-4

1 lb/450g. large shrimp, peeled and deveined - tail left on
½ medium onion
4 cloves garlic
3 tbsp lime juice
¼ cup Cholula hot sauce (this time I actually used a little more than half, thinking it might be too spicy, but next time, I'll do as suggested. The sauce, like Tabasco is hot, but the sweetness of the shrimp really balances it all)
Fresh ginger - One ¾" thick slice, peeled (about 1 tbsp chopped)
lime wedges

1. Put all marinade ingredients into a blender or food processor until smooth.

2. Pour marinade over shrimp in a non-metal container or plastic zip lock baggie and marinate for at least on hour or as long as 8 hours.

3. Grill over a hot fire, under a preheated broiler, or on a preheated grill pan, basting occasionally until done – 4- 5 minutes, flipping once.

I served it over a sweet rather than savory couscous. I like this Sweet Couscous with Currants as a perfect foil for the shrimp sauce. And add a squirt of lime juice. Delicious!!!
