“This is a recipe from the Crazy Plates cookbook. I have made it many times to rave reviews. It is a great grilled shrimp recipe and great for hot summer nights. Marinade time says 1 hour but I have left it in the marinade for up to 3 hours with good results. The fruit salsa is wonderful and I usually make this the day before. This recipe is easily doubled. I always double or more this recipe. Prep time includes marinade time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, olive oil, ketchup, garlic, coriander, and cumin.
  2. Pour over shrimp in glass baking dish or ziploc bag.
  3. Refrigerate 1 hour. Soak wooden skewers if you want to do skewers. (I find this the best).
  4. Put all salsa ingredients in a food processor and pulse on and off until mixture is pureed. Put in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  5. Remove shrimp from marinade and thread 4 pieces onto each skewer.
  6. Grill over medium-high grill for 3 to 4 mins per side basting with extra marinade.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
