We’re always looking for new ways to cook that fresh Fernandina shrimp, and for summertime dining, there’s nothing better than this recipe for Thai Shrimp Skewers. They are fast and delicious. We serve them over a plate of rice with a simple side salad. Enjoy!

Ingredients: 24 large of jumbo local shrimp, peeled and deveined 2 cups coconut milk ½ cup fresh lime juice ¼ cup Thai fish sauce 4 tablespoons Sriracha sauce Zest from the limes 1 Tablespoon minced garlic 1 Tablespoon minced ginger Handful of chopped scallions 1 teaspoon salt 8 inch bamboo skewers

Preparation: Mix all the ingredients (except for skewers!) in a Ziploc bag and marinate for 30 minutes. While the shrimp are marinating, soak the skewers in warm water. Then skewer the shrimp, 6-per skewer and grill for about 3-4 minutes total, turning as needed, basting with a bit of the marinade. Do not overcook. Serve over rice.
