Your weekly recipe this week is for yummy Grilled Miso Shrimp

You know what one of our favourite parts of cooking is here at Herioc Health headquarters?  It’s combining all of the weird, wacky and wonderful flavours that are found across the globe to create new and exciting dishes.  Who wouldn’t love that though?  After all, it is through endeavors such as this that we come across the craziest and most delectable flavour combinations.

This week’s dish is most certainly one of those amazing flavour combinations… We used yellow miso, fresh ginger and sambal oelek (Sambal is a sauce typically made from a variety of chili peppers and secondary ingredients such as shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, shallots, scallions, sugar, lime juice, and rice vinegar or other vinegars… can you say yummy!!) to create an appetizer that is positively scrumptious.  Enjoy it with a glass of your favourite wine and perhaps some cheese and crackers to make for a sweetly satisfying light meal or party treat.

  • 3 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. yellow miso

  • 1 tbsp. finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1½ tsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 lb. large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 3 scallions, cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths
  • ½ cup mayonnaise

1)    Light a grill or preheat a grill pan

2)    In a bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons of the lime juice with the miso, vegetable oil, ginger, garlic and brown sugar.  Add the shrimp and toss to coat.  Thread the shrimp and scallions on eight 8-inch skewers

3)    Grill the shrimp over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 5 minutes
