Grilled Shrimp with Cilantro and Lime

1 lime

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced

1 teaspoon cilantro, minced

1 garlic clove, minced

1 dried red thai chile pepper, finely minced

1 tablespoon minced shallot

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined

In a small bowl, mix together lime, ginger, cilantro, garlic, chile pepper and shallot.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Then whisk the olive oil into the mixture until all ingredients are combined.

Rinse the shrimp and pat dry.  Add the shrimp to the marinade, cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes. 

While the shrimp are marinating, prepare your wooden skewers by soaking them in warm water.

After 15 minutes, turn the grill to high heat.  Remove the shrimp and slide them onto the skewers through the tail and the head of the shrimp.  Approximately 4-5 shrimp per skewer.  Leave a little room between each shrimp.  Grill the skewers for 2 minutes per side.  Remove from heat and serve with extra limes.
