I might have just cooked one of the best meals of my life.

I marinaded 1.5lbs of peeled/deviened U16 shrimp about 45 minutes, and cooked them over charcoal and red oak chunks...5-6 minutes ish...

Served it with a Cherry Tomatoe/Cucumber/Red Onion/Basil/Olive Oil/lemon vinigerette salad and spanish rice.

Recipe for the marinade/sauce is below. and if any one uses this recipe, I would appreciate your feedback.

Spicy Citrus Marinade
1.5 Cups of Orance Juice
1 Whole Lime - Juiced
Cilantro – 3 Tbsps of finely chopped
1 Tbspoon fresh copped garlic
Red Onion – 1 Qtr Inch slice, then dice pretty thin
Cilantro- 3 Tbsp of thinly sliced
Olive Oil – 3 Tbsn
Salt Pepper
½ Jalepeno – remove seeds, and dice finely
Chipotle Powder

In a small to medium sauce pan, add 2-3 Table spoons of Olive oil. Add diced onions, jalepenos, cilantro, saute on med heat for 4-5 minutes ish, add garlic, stir for about a minute. Remove from heat.

Add OJ, Lime, and Salt, pepper and chipoltle powder to your taste… I like it spicy..

Pour half of the contents into what ever you want to marinade… it will marinade about 1 – 1.5 lbs of meat in a zip lock baggy…. This Rocks with shrimp…

The other half, put back on the stove on med heat, and reduce it down for a dipping sauce of what ever you are cooking…

The dipping sauce rocks...

Made this again for grouper.. Pan fried with olive oil, salt pepper, fresh lime juice.

Didnt marinade it, just reduced the above spicy citrus sauce down, added a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up... Added a bit more garlic this time..

Put the sauce on the fish after it was cooked

I am on to something.. I would put this up against professional chefs..

I made this last night with a couple of slight changes. My family and I really enjoyed it. Here is a link to my post.

I recommend this recipe if you are looking for a recipe that works well with shrimp.
