Recipe Information
Delicious and succulent shrimp with an oriental flare. VERY good for summer gatherings.

S. Chokel


  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dry sherry
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) peanut oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) fresh ginger, grated
  • 3 lbs (1.4 kg). jumbo shrimp, cleaned, shelled, and deveined
  • Mix to blend the soy sauce, sherry, oil, garlic, and ginger in a huge plastic zip locking bag or very secure locking large bowl, like a tupperware or rubber maid type, reserve 1/2 cup (125 ml) of mixed marinade for basting while grilling.
  • After you the marinade is mixed, add the shrimp and marinate for at least 4-6 hours and up to overnight.
  • Soak bamboo or wood skewers in water for at least 4 hours.
  • Put the shrimp on skewers.
  • Broil or grill close to heat for 4 minutes on each side, basting with reserved marinade.
  • Serve hot off the grill.
Wonderful to make, serve with grilled slices of pineapple, a nice thick NY strip steak, and lots of margaritas or a great cold beer! If you don't "drink", make ice cubes out of a watery-ish white grape juice and plunk down into a glass and pour a concoction of equal parts of gingerale, lime juice and cranberry cocktail.
