Grilled Peanut Shrimp Skewers

Ingredients
1
pound fresh or frozen large shrimp in shells
1/3
cup orange marmalade
2
tablespoons lime juice
2
tablespoons peanut butter
1
tablespoon cooking oil
1
teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1
clove garlic, minced
1/2
teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2
teaspoon ground coriander
1/2
teaspoon ground cumin
1/4
teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8
teaspoon ground red pepper
2
tablespoons coconut, toasted
 
Hot cooked brown rice (optional)

Directions

  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels.
  2. For marinade, in a medium bowl use a wire whisk to combine orange marmalade, lime juice, peanut butter, oil, ginger, garlic, cardamom, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and ground red pepper. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade until ready to serve. Add shrimp to the remaining marinade; toss to coat. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Drain shrimp, discarding marinade. On 4 long metal skewers thread shrimp. Grill shrimp kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 10 to 12 minutes or until shrimp are opaque, turning once halfway through grilling. (Or, broil on the unheated rack of a broiler pan about 4 inches from the heat for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once halfway through broiling.)
  4. To serve, heat the 1/4 cup marinade. Spoon the marinade over shrimp and sprinkle with toasted coconut. If desired, serve over hot rice.
