How to Make It

Step 1

In a blender or food processor, whirl lemon juice, oil, onion, cilantro, garlic, ginger, and chilies until smooth.

Step 2

Mix 1/3 cup chili mixture with yogurt.

Step 3

In a bowl, mix the remaining chili mixture with shrimp and let stand at least 10 or up to 30 minutes, then thread shrimp onto metal skewers.

Step 4

Prepare barbecue for direct heat.

Step 5

If using charcoal briquets, cover firegrate with a single, solid layer of ignited coals; let them burn down to desired heat. Set grill in place and measure heat.

Step 6

If using a gas barbecue, turn all burners to high and close lid for 10 minutes. Adjust burners to desired heat. Set grill in place and measure heat.

Step 7

When grill is hot (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds) lay skewered shrimp on it. Turn to cook shrimp evenly until they are opaque but still moist-looking in thickest part (cut to test), 5 to 8 minutes

Step 8

Push shrimp off skewers and serve with yogurt sauce and salt to taste.
