Grilled sesame-lime shrimp and cucumber skewers

  Snacks       grilled sesame-lime shrimp cucumber skewers       August 31, 2015

For this recipe, you need large shrimp; I use 21/25 size (remember, that means 21 to 25 shrimp to the pound), but you could step up to 16/20 size, which would make a two-bite appetizer. Slice Persian..

From the pantry, you'll need: reduced sodium soy sauce, sesame oil, agave nectar, lime, frozen shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1-1/4 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp agave nectar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 lb large (21/25 size) shrimp, defrosted, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 small Persian cucumber or 1/4 seedless (English) cucumber, cut into quarter-rounds
  • Black and white sesame seeds, for garnish

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the soy sauce, sesame oil, agave, lime juice and black pepper. Marinate the shrimp in this mixture for 30-45 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, soak your skewers in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Heat your grill (or broiler), and when it has reached high temperature, thread the shrimp and cucumber pieces onto the skewers by wrapping the shrimp around the cucumber. If there's any marinade left in the bowl, paint it on the shrimp.
  4. Place the skewers on the grill (use a perforated grill pan, if you have one). Cook for 1 minute on each side, or until the shrimp turn pink and curl around the cucumber (not more than 3 minutes total).
  5. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve hot or at room temperature, or make ahead and serve chilled.
