- Coriander (only two or three strands)
Now, in a large bowl, combine 1/3 cup olive, ginger, garlic, lemongrass, chilli, lime juice and herbs of your choice. Mix the ingredients well, add shrimp and toss until well coated in marinade. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave in fridge for 45-60 minutes.
Put a clean frying pan on medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons olive oil, take out the bowl from the fridge and drain the shrimps. Now fry the shrimps (small batches) until they just change colour to an orangey shade that should take about 2-3 minutes.
Take your skewers and thread the shrimps, place on a plate with thinly sliced lemon wedges and sprinkle with coriander, you can add some salad sprinkled with Olive oil, serve to your other half, better still feed her with your own hands and enjoy.
