Boom! How amazing does this look? Cilantro and limo is one of my favorite flavor combinations and the crunch of peanut is perfection. The trick to this succulent shrimp is that it's grilled with the skin on! Yes, it makes the shrimp super juicy and delicious. I suggest serving this with a side of garlic noodles. It packs a lot of great flavor and is one you'll be sure to make time and time again.
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 pound (about 15) jumbo shrimp, shells on
2 teaspoons safflower oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
2 scallions, finely chopped
Zest limes into a bowl. Squeeze in juice from 1 lime, and whisk in fish sauce and sugar.
Preheat grill to high. Brush shrimp with oil on both sides, and lightly season with salt and pepper. Grill until pink and firm to the touch, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Peel shrimp and toss with fish-sauce mixture, cilantro, peanuts, and scallions. Juice remaining lime over shrimp.
