  1. Combine the jalapeno, lime zest, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, coconut, olive oil, and soy sauce in a food processor; blend until smooth. Place the shrimp in a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and allow to marinate at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Thread the shrimp onto skewers, piercing each shrimp near the head and tail.
  4. Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning frequently until nicely browned on all sides and the meat is no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

The heat from the jalapeno drowned out the other flavors. Next time, I will reduce the jalapeno. For the person looking for a spicy jalapeno: look for one with "stripess" or streaks that give...

This dish is amazing! I did alter it a bit however... added 1/3 cup of lime juice, 2 tbs of coconut milk, 1 tbs cayenne pepper, 2 tbs chili powder. When grilling poured some of the extra marinad...

I really enjoyed this recipe; the marinade has a good flavor. I'm not a huge soy fan, so I cut back on it just a tad. I was a bit disappointed (no fault to the recipe) that my jalapenos didn't o...

This is an absolutely amazing recipe! I did make one modification, however. Instead of including the jalepenos, I opted for serrano peppers. My family was literally salivating for more after the...

Very good, but ended up pretty salty. I'll use low sodium soy sauce next time. This can be used as a side dish or use larger shrimp and make it a main course. I altered this recipe using half...

This marinade is really delicious! I didn't have jalepenos, so just added a bit of sriracha and that gave it are really nice kick and I highly recommend that addition to anyone looking for more ...

This is a fantastic (and fantastically easy) recipe. The only thing I changed was to set aside a few tablespoons of the marinade to brush on while grilling.
