Marinated shrimp grilled on the grill and served with roasted asparagus and peas. Very delicious! This shrimp recipe adapted from

Ingredients: 1/4 cup (60 ml) olive oil, 1 oz (30 ml) low-sodium soy sauce, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon (10 ml) finely chopped garlic, 1 teaspoon (10 ml) finely chopped fresh ginger, 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped, 1½ pounds (720 g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined, 1 cup (250 ml) sugar snap peas, trimmed and halved diagonally, 1 pound (480 g) asparagus, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces, 2 teaspoons (10 ml) canola oil, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, fresh basil leaves for garnish

Instructions: In a mixing bowl, combine olive oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, and jalapeno pepper. Mix well and set aside.

Place shrimp in a large bowl. Pour 2/3 of ginger-soy mixture over and toss well to coat, reserving remaining mixture. Cover shrimp mixture and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

In a large pot, boil water over medium-high heat. Add snap peas and asparagus. Cook in boiling water for 45 seconds, then remove from the pan and plunge into a bowl of ice water. Drain well.

Preheat a cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add canola oil to the pan and swirl to coat well. Add cooked asparagus and peas and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Remove the skillet from the heat.

Stir in reserved olive oil mixture to asparagus mixture. Return the skillet to the heat and cook for a further 30 seconds. Remove asparagus mixture from the heat. Sprinkle with salt and basil. Serve with grilled shrimp.

  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) lime juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Splenda
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
