This flavorful dish is best made using Colossal shrimp
These Ginger-Mint Grilled Shrimp are really a cinch to make. I always love how they ask “how long to make”…well, if you don’t count the 30 minutes of marinating time, 10 would be the answer. This dish is really flavorful, and best made using large (Colossal) shrimp, shrimp that come to 12 or less per pound, these are almost like mini lobster tails in taste and texture. As a matter of fact, if you wanted to, you could just use the lobster!
Ginger-Mint Grilled Shrimp

1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

The zest from 1 lime
The juice from 1 lime (zest first, juice second)

Salt and freshly ground pepper, as needed

LindySez: These are also delicious hors-d’oeuvres to pass around a dinner party. Buy smaller shrimp, marinate and put on a long skewer; then grill. Remove them from the cooking skewer and put them on small skewers or toothpicks to serve.
