Ginger Shrimp Mini Skewers

Ginger, spring onions, and soy sauce give these tiny skewers a tasty Asian twist. Pass a plate of these on the deck while sipping chilled sake or iced green tea. Be sure to soak the skewers in water a few hours before using so they won't splinter or burn.

Yield: Makes 24 miniature (4- to 4 1/2-inch) skewers

  2. 2. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for high heat (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds).
  3. 3. Meanwhile, whisk together grated ginger, grated garlic, rice vinegar, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Thread shrimp onto soaked skewers (see notes) and season with salt and pepper.
