Shrimp Pacifica

Please enjoy this old family recipe- it’s delicious!

Shrimp Pacifica

1 lb of medium shrimp in shell
1/2 cup vegetable oil/olive oil*
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tsp mixed Italian herbs
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp coarse ground pepper
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 cup thinly sliced Vidalia onions

*Since the marinade is boiled after and then used as a dipping sauce, olive oil adds no nutritional benefit if used instead of vegetable oil, it’s just a taste preference.

1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
2. Let marinade for several hours, or longer. (We have, on occasion, marinated the shrimp for only 30 minutes or so, but its always best marinated for as long as possible.)
3. Start up your grill!
4. Separate the shrimp from the marinade, pour the remaining marinade in a saucepan on low heat, put the shrimp on the grill in a basket- to seal their doom! (We realize, of course, they are no longer alive. Sad.)


5. Grill shrimp until pink, usually no more than 7 minutes.


6. Cook down marinade until sauce has thickened, and is boiling.
7. Pour the marinade into individual bowls for each person, and enjoy!

Serves 2-3. People. Not angry wolves.
