Spicy BBQ Shrimp


  • 1 Fresh Lemon Juiced
  • 2 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Teaspoon Diced Fresh Ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Curry Paste
  • 2 Pound Large Shrimp – Peeled And Deveined


  1. In a shallow dish or resealable bag, mix together the lemon juice, soy sauce, mustard, garlic, brown sugar and curry paste. Add shrimp, and seal or cover. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour or more.
  2. Preheat a grill for high heat. When the grill is hot, lightly oil the grate. Thread the shrimp onto skewers, or place in a grill basket for easy handling. Transfer the marinade to a saucepan, and boil for a few minutes.
  3. Grill shrimp for 3 minutes per side, or until opaque. Baste occasionally with the marinade.
  4. Serve with Cucumber Salad and Jasmine or white rice.
