Summer Cilantro Shrimp

This is a favorite recipe of mine. First of all let's talk shrimp. Minnesota grown shrimp is available in Elgin Minnesota. 
The company is called North Tide Farm. It is a first of it's kind indoor saltwater shrimp farm here in Minnesota. They raise pacific white shrimp.

Taken right from their website: 
We raise Pacific White shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) in a zero waste environment free of chemicals, antibiotics, and growth hormones and sell them fresh to you!
There website -

So now onto the recipe

1 bunch of cilantro
2 jalapeno's seeded. 
2 scallions
2 Tbsp fresh grated ginger
3/4 cup EVOO
1-2  pound shrimp peeled and deveined
(the reason 1-2 pounds is because the marinade will cover up to 2 pounds) 
sea salt, and pepper
zest and juice of one lime
skewers soaked in water for a few hours or longer. 

In a food processor or vitamix blender combine cilantro, jalapeno's, scallions, ginger and olive oil. Blend until combined.
Put the shrimp in a bowl and pour the cilantro marinade over the top. I leave this sit for up to 4 hours. But you can go an hour and call it good.
Then I put them on the skewers and cook on the grill for 3 minutes on each side depending on how hot your grill is.
Then Enjoy however you would like!
