To make

Instructions

Tandoori Marinade:
In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, add vegetable oil and toast all dry spices plus garlic for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add to a mixing bowl and combine with yogurt, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Transfer the marinade and thawed shrimp to a gallon size ziplock bag. Massage the marinade into the shrimp, covering evenly. Marinate for an hour at room temperature, or place in the refrigerator to marinate further, up to overnight.

Satay Marinade:
In a small saucepan over medium heat, add all ingredients except for the shrimp, stirring constantly with a whisk to avoid burning. When the marinade reaches a boil, remove from the heat and transfer to a mixing bowl. Place the marinade in the refrigerator until chilled.
Once chilled, transfer the marinade and shrimp to a gallon size ziplock bag. Massage the marinade into the shrimp, covering evenly. Marinate for an hour at room temperature, or place in the refrigerator to marinate further, up to overnight.

Jerk Marinade:
In a blender or food processor, add all vegetables and blend for 20—30 seconds until smooth. Pour mixture through a mesh strainer to remove the extra liquid.
Pour the purée into a medium size mixing bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Transfer the marinade and shrimp to a gallon size ziplock bag. Massage the marinade into the shrimp, covering evenly. Marinate for an hour at room temperature, or place in the refrigerator to marinate further, up to overnight.

How to Grill:
Preheat grill with the lid covered to 400°F. Make sure to soak wooden skewers in water to avoid burning. Divide shrimp onto 4 skewers and grill for 5—7 minutes, turning halfway through. Serve and enjoy!
