Wish Upon A Dish: Grilled Ginger-Hoisin Shrimp

July 10, 2012

Grilled Ginger-Hoisin Shrimp

This recipe comes, by way of FedEx, from a site I have subscribed to for many tasty years....America's Test Kitchen. I bought a new cookbook because their special deal was too good to pass up.

If you bought the America's Test Kitchen Cooking for Two 2012, you got the 2011 addition at no extra charge (not even S&H).
I sat The Nudge down last week and gave him first dibs on picking four recipes from the 2012 addition.

The first recipe he choose was an Asian-style shrimp dish.

I used the sauce ingredients to make a basting sauce to use on the grill. The amounts clearly made enough for 4 servings.

Thumbs up, a definite keeper.

I made a basic chopped garden salad on the side.
