SWEET AND SPICY SHRIMP WITH PASSION FRUIT SAUCE

Omaha Steaks Great American Grilling Book
You can use skewers if you don't have a perforated grill pan. Put 3 or 4 shrimp on each skewer; the grilling time is the same.
Prep Time: 10 mins
Grill Time: 6 mins
Serves 4

 

INGREDIENTS

    For the Shrimp:
    • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 1½ pounds(about 15 per pound) jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

    For the Sauce:
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
    • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 1/2 cup passion fruit puree
     

DIRECTIONS

1. For the Shrimp, whisk together the brown sugar, lime juice, olive oil, cayenne, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

2. For the Sauce, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and add the shallot, ginger, and garlic. Saute 3 or 4 minutes and add the passion fruit puree. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to low. Cook 5 minutes, then strain into a clean pan; keep warm.

3. Preheat and oil the grill. Remove the shrimp from the marinade (discard marinade) and place on a perforated grill pan. Grill over direct medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until the shrimp are cooked through and pink. Remove the shrimp from the grill and serve with the warm sauce.
 

    Chef's Tip: Fruit Purees
    Exotic fruit purees like the passion fruit puree used in this recipe are sold at specialty food stores or online (check out perfectpuree.com). You can find lots of flavors, from unusual fruits like guava and prickly pear to more familiar flavors like blueberry and white peach. They are a quick and easy way to add real fruit flavor to sauces and marinades, or as an ingredient in frozen desserts or fruit smoothies.
