Citrus Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Prep time: 5 minutes

Marinating time: 20-30 minutes

Grill time: 10 minutes


Ingredients:

1 lb/450 g extra large shrimp, peeled & deveined  (21-30 count)

Marinade:

1-2 cloves garlic, crushed

Juice & zest of 1 lime, 1 lemon & 1/2 orange

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp Dionysios Wild Herb Blend

2 tsp Tlalelolco Spice Blend


Large chunks of your favorite grilling vegetables like:

large mushrooms, quartered

sweet red peppers, seeded & chunked

hot red peppers, thinly sliced

red onion wedges

asparagus

young snap peas in their pods

or anything else crunchy that you love

Garnish:

fresh cilantro, chopped


Directions:

1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl and remove half to another bowl


2. Add the shrimp to one bowl and the vegetables to the other.  Toss and allow to marinate.


3. Heat the grill and grill basket at the same time.  You want the cooking surface to be very hot - like a wok


4. Saute the vegetables, tossing occasionally until the vegetables char slightly and soften.  Then add the shrimp and toss.  Cook until the shrimp are pink (about 5 minutes).


5. Remove to a serving platter and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.  


I served it over cooked quinoa but it would be great with pasta or rice. Not to mention being great cold for a picnic lunch.
