Recipe: Shrimp with Cilantro Sauce

Makes: 24 / Prep time: 20 minutes / Total time: 30 minutes (plus chilling time)


1/3 cup mild sweet chili sauce

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon rice or white vinegar

1 teaspoon sesame oil, optional


1/2 teaspoon salt

1 clove garlic, peeled, pressed

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon mild sweet chili sauce

1 pound large shrimp (21 to 25 count), peeled, deveined, tails on

2 tablespoons canola oil

In a small bowl, combine all the cilantro sauce ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary. The sauce should be sweet with a hint of spice. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

To prepare the shrimp, use a large bowl and whisk together the salt, garlic, brown sugar, lemon juice and chili sauce. Add the shrimp and set aside for 15 minutes.

In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of canola oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through, about 6 minutes.

Remove the shrimp to a platter and cool. Once cool, chill at least 30 minutes before serving. Arrange on a platter with the sauce or serve on skewers.
