Lemongrass Marinade for Shrimp

Ingredients:

1/4 cup good quality olive oil
1 T Ground Chili and Garlic Sauce* – or equivalent amount of ground chilis and ground garlic
1 T chopped fresh garlic
1 4 inch stem fresh lemongrass – peel the outer layers, rinse, and smash with a mallet, do not chop
1 T fresh lime juice
1 T low sodium soy sauce
¼ t fresh cracked black peppercorns
smashed lemongrass stem
12 shrimp, peeled, deveined, and rinsed

*Ground Chili and Garlic Sauce found in the Asian section of your grocers. Look for the little jars with a rooster drawing on it. If you prefer, you can sub in Sriracha sauce.

Directions:

Mix the oil, chili and garlic sauce, the stems of lemongrass, lime juice, soy sauce, black peppercorns and place in a zip lock bag. Prepare the shrimp and add to the bag. Squish out as much air as you can and seal the bag. Marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours before grilling. Discard all remaining marinade after skewering the shrimp.
