  • Caribbean Holiday Shrimp by doreenbuch

    doreenbuch - Posted March 01, 2004 02:15 PM

    Found this on allrecipes and was going to take it to the cocktail party last eve, but they gave me the WRONG SIZE of shrimp at the market........would have had to put 3 on a party pick........I was not happy!!!!! ANYWAY....decided to make shrimp fried rice w/ veggies tonight and these shrimp are GREAT!!!!!! DOUBLE or TRIPLE the marinade recipe - I doubled w/ 2lbs of my "EXLARGE" shrimp, which looked like MEDIUM when I got home. I had them steam my shrimp, then I peeled them while hot and put them in the marinade (had marinade all ready..did it in the food processor - EASY)!!!!!!!! I was going to put a BIG shrimp wrapped w/ a blanched snow pea (which I already had ready) on a pick........didnt happen!!!! But the flavor is GREAT!!!!! I did NOT put 1/2 c cilantro in....actually, you could just do some parsley for color, and a little bit of fresh cilantro - I added more garlic, too. These are VERY GOOD!!!!!! Would make a VERY NICE presentation w/ the snowpeas if you had BIG SHRIMP on a nice leaf lettuce lined tray!!
