This tasty meal not only comes together quickly but we used the same recipe as a glaze on the shrimp & as a dressing for a fruit salad. I also liked it mixed into jasmine rice on the side. It has a sweet & tangy summery flavor, that one could almost call tropical. For two people this glaze recipe made enough to cook the shrimp, dress the fruit salad & have a little more left to serve on top.
Honey, Lime & Mint Glaze
(from Mastering the Grill)
6 T honey
juice & zest of 1 lime
1 T chopped mint
1/4 t kosher salt
Mix all ingredients together.
8 to 10 large shrimp, peeled & deveined
Glaze from above
skewers or a grilling basket or screen
Coat the shrimp with the Honey Glaze. Grill on skewers or an oil grilling basket or screen on direct medium-high heat. Shrimp should take about 2 - 3 minutes per side depending on size. Do not overcook. Serve with a little extra glaze drizzled over the top.
Use any extra glaze as a dressing on the fruit of your choice.
We used strawberries, peaches & horned melon.
