Even more impressive than the presentation is how these grilled jumbo shrimp pack a punch. They're marinated with Asian-inspired ingredients such as sesame oil, lemongrass, hot chile pepper, curry powder, and Thai basil.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat a grill: If using a charcoal grill, make a fire in your grill with the coals placed off to one side. When the coals are completely covered in gray ash, hold your hand about 5 inches above the grill grid; count how many seconds you can comfortably leave it there. When you can hold it there for 2 to 3 seconds, you have medium-high heat and are ready to grill. If you are using a gas grill, heat the grill for 15 minutes with the lid closed. Before beginning to cook, reduce the temperature by turning the knobs to medium-high.

  • Brush shrimp with sesame oil and season with salt and pepper. Place shrimp on grill near, but not directly over, the coals and cook, turning once, until shrimp are opaque, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and transfer to a large nonreactive bowl.

  • Add ginger, garlic, chile, curry powder, lemongrass, Thai basil, mint, cilantro, lime juice, fish sauce, and sugar to bowl with shrimp. Toss to combine. Serve immediately.
