A marinade including vermouth, garlic, and Tabasco infuses the shrimp with sweet-and-spicy flavors.


  • 2 lbs large shrimp (in the shell)
  • 1/3 cup safflower oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 Tbs dry white wine or vermouth
  • 1 Tbs minced shallots or green onions (white part only)
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced fresh dill or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • several dashes Tabasco sauce


  • Place shrimp in a shallow ceramic or glass baking dish. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over shrimp. Cover and chill several hours or overnight. Drain shrimp and reserve marinade. Thread on skewers or place in a wire grill basket. Grill shrimp over hot coals, turning and brushing with reserved marinade, until pink and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Serve with wooden picks.
