  • 2 Tablespoons turmeric
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • One 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1-2 Teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  • 4 Pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined

For the chutney

  • 2 Cups orange juice
  • 16 Ounces tamarind purée
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons ice-cold water
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 oranges, segmented
  • 1 Tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 Tablespoon cumin

Directions

For the shrimp

Combine the garam masala, coriander, turmeric, garlic, ginger, and Sriracha sauce in a food processor and purée until smooth. Rub the mixture onto the shrimp and marinate for 30 minutes. Grill the shrimp and serve with the tamarind chutney (recipe below). 

 

For the chutney

Heat the orange juice, tamarind purée, and red onion in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil.  Lower the heat and cook until the mixture is reduced by about 1/3. In a small bowl, whisk together the water and cornstarch until dissolved. Then, whisk in 1 cup of the hot orange juice mixture and pour the cornstarch mixture into a saucepan.

Add the oranges, coriander, cumin, ginger, and cilantro to saucepan. Stir well and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. When the mixture reaches a boil, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool before serving it with the shrimp.

Grilled Shrimp Shopping Tip

It may be tempting to buy peeled, deveined shrimp, but if you're going to be grilling them, you'll get juicier shrimp if you leave the shell on.

Grilled Shrimp Cooking Tip

Make sure to thoroughly rinse and dry the shrimp before cooking them.
