Porter-Chili Paste Grilled Shrimp
Lucy Saunders
prep time : Advance prep required
recipe type: appetizers - plated
ingredients: 12 oz. porter
1/3 cup dark toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon frozen lime juice concentrate
2 tablespoons fish sauce
6 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 tablespoon hot Chinese powdered ginger
1 teaspoon powdered cardamom
1 teaspoon (or more to taste) Chinese red chili paste
1 1/2 pounds large, shell on shrimp (about 30)
10 bamboo skewers

Blend the porter, sesame oil, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, cardamom, and chili paste and whisk well. Rinse shrimp in cold water, drain well, and place in a large nonreactive shallow dish. Pour marinade in, and stir so shrimp are evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Prepare a grill for several minutes of medium heat. Thread shrimp on skewers, 3 pieces to each skewers. Grill just 40 to 60 SECONDS on each side or until shells just turn orangy pink. The shrimp will continue to cook when you remove them from the grill - so be careful not to covercook them. Place the shrimp on a platter, let cool for several minutes, and serve.
