Roasted Shrimp with Honey ginger soy Marinade

Roasted Shrimp with Honey ginger soy Marinade

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 small clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon roughly chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 pound jumbo shrimp (1 3/4 lb large) or 50 frozen, cleaned large shrimp
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • thinly sliced scallions for garnish

Instructions

In a food processor or blender, process the soy sauce, garlic, oil, honey, dry mustard, and ginger until the garlic and ginger are finely chopped and well combined, 1 to 2 minutes (or chop the garlic and ginger very fine with a knife and then whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl.) Set the marinade aside, or cover and refrigerate for up to several weeks. Position the oven rack to the top level and heat the oven to 500 degrees. If using shrimp in the shell, peel and devein them. If using cleaned, defrosted shrimp, skip this step. Either way, dry the shrimp well with paper towels and set aside. Season the shrimp lightly with salt and pepper. Put them in a bowl with the marinade, tossing to coat thoroughly. Let them sit unrefrigerated, stirring once or twice. After 5 minutes, remove the shrimp (discard the marinade) and arrange them on a baking sheet, 1 inch apart. Put the pan in the oven toward the back; roast until the shrimp are cooked through and white throughout, 5 to 8 minutes (use the shorter cooking time if using a thin pan or smaller shrimp); cut one in half to check. Sprinkle with scallions and serve immediately. NOTES : These shrimp go well with rice and sauteed snow peas or broccoli. Make half again or double the marinade, then reserve the excess to make a sauce that is great on rice, even all by itself]
