Great tasting easy recipe. I don't have a food processor, so I chopped the ingredients which worked out well. I doubled the oils like other users and used the juice of an entire lime. I also added red pepper flakes to spice it up. I cooked it in a skillet for a few minutes and it was great!
Grilled Ginger-Lime Shrimp
Since the chopped garlic is part of the marinade, which adheres well to the shrimp, it has plenty of time to develop its potent nutritional compounds. Serve over rice.
