Official Barbeque Season

Well, it's here. The official barbeque season. To celebrate, here is the most amazing marinade for grilled shrimp EVAH! Trust me. No, really.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
2 T oriental sesame oil
3 T Cajun seasoning mix (I use Cajun's Choice, but I'm sure any will do.)
2 T fresh lemon juice
1 T minced fresh ginger
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp hot pepper sauce (eg., Tabasco - is there any other kind?)
16 uncooked large shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails left on.

Whisk together first 8 ingredients in bowl large enough to contain shrimp. Add shrimp and stir to coat well. Let stand for 30 minutes. Longer means hotter!

While shrimp are marinating, soak wooden skewers in water, if using.

Prepare barbeque coals (medium-high heat). Remove shrimp from marinade and thread 3 to 4 onto each wooden skewer. If you're adventurous, just put them on the grill. I always lose a few this way, but my skill level at grilling is somewhere between "oh, it's just a second degree burn" and "call the Fire Marshall!" Grill until pink and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
