Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 16 medium-sized shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • lime wedges
  • red onion, cut into chunks
  • red and yellow peppers, cut into chunks
  • Cilantro Dressing -
  • 1½ cups loose cilantro leaves (some stems are ok)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  1. To make the dressing, using a hand blender, whiz all ingredients until smooth. Lightly coat shrimp with the cilantro dressing (you don’t need all of the dressing) and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat barbeque to medium-high. Thread 4 shrimp onto each skewer using onion, lime wedges and pepper chunks as separators. Grill shrimp until pink on the outside and opaque in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Squeeze the lime wedges over the shrimp. Grilling the lime brings out a sweeter taste. Serve with a side of the cilantro dressing.
  3. The Culinary Chase’s Note: Use the dressing recipe as a guide and let your taste buds do the talking. Enjoy!
