BOHEMIA, N.Y., July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- European Union funded campaign Flavor Your Life, a campaign dedicated to educating consumers about the latest in olive oil industry news, shares a recipe for Marinated Grilled Shrimp with Roasted Red Pepper Dip prepared with extra virgin olive oil.
Marinated Grilled Shrimp Ingredients:
¼ cup orange juice
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup finely chopped Italian parsley
2 tbsp. scallions, finely chopped
2 tsp. Ponzu sauce (or soy sauce)
1 lg. clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. orange zest
½ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. extra-large or jumbo shrimp, peeled & deveined (about 24 shrimp)
Roasted Red Pepper Dip Ingredients:
1 cup (about 6 oz.) jarred roasted red peppers, drained
1 small clove garlic
1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. chopped scallion
½ tsp. smoked Spanish paprika
½ tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. orange juice
2 oz. cream cheese cut into small pieces, softened
Soak 12 (6-inch long) bamboo skewers in water about 20 minutes. Place marinade ingredients in a large zipper-style plastic freezer bag; shake about 15 seconds to combine. Place shrimp in bag; seal, shake to coat well with marinade; refrigerate 30-45 minutes.
Pre-heat the grill to medium-high heat. Thread 2 shrimp onto each pre-soaked skewer. Grill about 2-3 minutes per side or until pink & just cooked through. Serve warm with Roasted Red Pepper Dip (see below) and garnish with a sprinkle of additional chopped scallions, if desired.
For the red pepper dip, pulse peppers and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. Add remaining ingredients and process until mixture is smooth and well pureed. Recipe can be prepared with Tuscan olive oil as well.
