Makes 10 to 12 servings

Notes: Instead of spice paste, you can use 1/4 cup prepared Thai red curry paste. You will need about 24 thin wood or metal skewers; if using wood skewers, soak them in water at least 30 minutes just before using. Up to 1 day ahead, coat shrimp with spice mixture and thread onto skewers; wrap airtight and chill.

How to Make It

Step 1

Mix spice paste, tomato paste, and lemon juice. Coat shrimp with mixture.

Step 2

Lay 2 or 3 shrimp flat, parallel to each other, and run 2 skewers about 1 inch apart through center of shrimp. Repeat to skewer remaining shrimp.

Step 3

Lay shrimp on a lightly oiled grill over hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds). Cook, turning occasionally, until shrimp are opaque but moist-looking in center of thickest part (cut to test), 5 to 6 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
