Recipe Ingredients for Curried Grilled Jumbo Shrimp

1 1/2 pounds jumbo shrimp
4 cloves garlic
2 red chilie peppers, small chopped
2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 cups white rice, cooked

Recipe Directions for Curried Grilled Jumbo Shrimp

  1. Use scissors to cut down the back of the shrimp, through the shell, to remove the vein. Gently loosen the shell around the shrimp, but keep it in place. Set aside.

  2. In a mortar, pound the garlic and chilies to a coarse paste (or use a mini food processor or chop to a paste with a knife). Add the sugar and salt and pound or chop to a finer paste. Stir in the coriander, curry and oil.

  3. Gently pull open the shell of each shrimp and, dividing the coriander paste evenly, push some of it down the back of the shrimp where the vein was and unde the shell a bit. Close up the shell around the shrimp.

  4. Marinate a room temperature at least 2 hours or, covered, in the refrigerator up to 4 hours.

  5. Preheat a gril or broiler. Grill or broil the shrimp until the shells are charred on one side and the shrimp is cooked halfway through, about 3 minutes. Turn and cook orn the other side for 1 to 3 minutes.

  6. Serve immediately with the rice.
