Recipe of the Day: Ginger-Soy-Lime Marinated Shrimp

Today's recipe of the day is inspired by my favorite local seafood market, and my husband's favorite chef, Bobby Flay. Bon appetit!

Ginger-Soy-Lime Marinated Shrimp

2 large shallots, peeled and chopped
1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic, smashed
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup peanut oil
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 pounds large shrimp

Place shallots, ginger, garlic, soy, lime juice, and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the green onion and oil and blend until combined. Season with black pepper, to taste. Place shrimp in a large bowl, pour the marinade over, and let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Preheat grill to high. Remove shrimp from marinade and grill for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side.
