“I came up with this recipe for the Mixing Pot Challenge of the Zaar World Tour 6. I tried to represent my team "A Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens" in an Asian marinade that is great for shrimp. Its zesty and sweet, and has a bit of kick, just like our team. I used the marinade for grilled shrimp, I also tried it sauteed and liked the grilling method best. I recommend saving out about 1/4 cup of the marinade as a dipping sauce for the grilled shimp. We served it with fried rice as a side dish, but this would also make a wonderful appetizer! If you like it spicy, use 4 tablespoons of the chili garlic sauce. I used 3 and it was a little spicy but I could have gone hotter. You can also add some crushed red pepper to kick it up. Prep time includes marinating time.”
