Blogging Dinner: Grilled Sesame Shrimp Skewers


Inspired by the folks at Smitten Kitchen, and feeling certain culinary inclinations myself, I decided to blog our newest recipe for dinner.  Tonight, Marc and I made Grilled Sesame Shrimp Skewers, which we found on Newman’s Own’s website.  The side dish, we concocted on our own.  Enjoy the step-by-step process and corresponding photos.

1.  Peel raw shrimp for skewering.  Here, I’ve divided the shrimp between the two of us.  We got 1/2 lb. of shrimp, which worked up to seven (and a half) each.

2.  Quarter onions and chop ginger.  You’ll use the onions for the skewers and the ginger for the grilling process.

3.  Skewer shrimp through the head (thick part) and again through the base, near the tail.  Alternate with layers of the onion quarters.

4.  Place skewers (single layer) in a shallow Tupperware container that seals.  Marinate shrimp in Newman’s Own Sesame Ginger Marinade for an hour.

5.  In the last few minutes of the marinating process, you can begin your side.  For this side, we made brown rice in one pan, and cooked veggies in another.  The particular veggies we used here were the Trader Joe’s Thai Style Ginger and Carrots with Toasted Almonds.  the little blobs you see in the pan are actually individually frozen bits of balsamic butter.  Pretty amazing.

When the veggies are cooked, combine and keep on a LOW stove.

6.  Sprinkle fresh ginger over skewers.  Place skewers on grill or, as seen here, your Cuisinart Griddler.  Grill on both sides until shrimp is cooked through.
