32 large shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 1 pound)
How to Make It
Combine the first 9 ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth. Reserve 1/4 cup marinade. Place remaining marinade mixture in a large zip-top plastic bag, and add shrimp. Seal and shake to coat. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.
Prepare grill or broiler.
Remove shrimp from bag, reserving marinade. Thread shrimp onto each of 4 (12-inch) skewers. Place kebabs on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 3 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done, basting frequently with remaining marinade. Spoon reserved 1/4 cup marinade over shrimp.
We bought whole shrimp, so we had to peel/devein the shrimp which was extremely time consuming. However, once the dish was completed, it was very tasty. Based on the previous reviews, I doubled the chili sauce, and I'm glad I did. Just the right amount of sweetness with a kick. We used the grill and it was completely worth it! Delicious!
I agree with the previous reviewer - the orange marmalade is too much and the heat is too little. This dish was just OK - MIGHT try again with less marmalade and more chili paste, and grill instead of broiling. It's definitely for those who like their food on the sweet side.
Made as published, and my husband and I thought it was okay. The orange marmalade flavor was a bit overpowering, and the dish was not as spicy as we like. When we added additional chili garlic sauce to our individual servings, it was much tastier. Next time, I will cut the marmalade in half, and bump up the chili garlic sauce.
I wish I could give this 6 stars. Wow!! This is the best asian sauce I have made at home. I doubled the sauce and used 2 cubed chicken breasts. Stir-fried the chicken and some chopped bell peppers, and poured the sauce over it all. Serve over rice. This sauce is amazing!! You will not be disappointed.
