Caribbean Holiday Shrimp

1 tbl vegetable oil
2 tbl minced fresh ginger
2 limes juiced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tbl soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
2 pounds large cooked shrimp peeled, tails on

Combine all ingredients except shrimp and cilantro. Mix well. Stir in shrimp and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate 1-4 hours. Stir occasionally while chilling.

I found this recipe on the internet and have used it many times. Instead of mixing in a bowl, I dump everything in a gallon plastic bag. Easy to mix and store in the frig. I just turn it over a couple times while it's chilling.

I peeled it with a pearing knife and used a hand grater that had a large side and small side and grated on the small side. I also used fresh garlic and pressed it myself. This is also really fabulous if you need to bring a dish to a gathering, and I did just that yesterday. I kept the marinade mix, the shrimp, and the cilantro in seperate bags on ice in a cooler all day yesterday while I was touring gardens. When I got to the second to last house I mixed the shrimp and cilantro bags into the marinade (so easy to just turn the bag) and dumped it in a big bowl at the pot luck party. While we were eating I kept hearing, who brought the delicious shrimp Big Grin Now that the stores are downsizing packaging the large bags of frozen shrimp were in 12 oz bags. I actually used three twelve ounce bags of large frozen shrimp tail on then thawed, rinsed, patted dry and the amount of seasoning was still perfect.
