  1. In a shallow dish or resealable bag, mix together the lemon juice, soy sauce, mustard, garlic, brown sugar and curry paste. Add shrimp, and seal or cover. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat a grill for high heat. When the grill is hot, lightly oil the grate. Thread the shrimp onto skewers, or place in a grill basket for easy handling. Transfer the marinade to a saucepan, and boil for a few minutes.
  3. Grill shrimp for 3 minutes per side, or until opaque. Baste occasionally with the marinade.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Stellar. The weather was not conducive to grilling, so I poured the shrimp and the marinade into a skillet and simmered until the shrimp was done. My wife, daughter and I all loved it. My son, w...

The flavor was great on these. I used curry powder sice I didn't have paste. I am giving it a 4 star because they turned out a bit dry. No one else complained of this, so it must have been me th...

Great recipe. I used red curry paste, and spicy mustard with the rest of the ingredients, and marinated it overnight. Then I grilled it...totally delicious, and really spicy, due to the amount...

This was very tasty. I like spicy so much, the second time I made it I didn't put the shrimp on the skewers, I cooked them in a tin foil "boat". Was way to spicy, I'll stick to the original.

hmmm The sauce was tasty, and I also threw the whole thing in a skillet for a few minutes, then put it on top of South Beach-friendly cauliflower rice and mushrooms...but I didn't taste so much ...

I made this for me and my two children, and we all loved it!! I had to make it on the stove, because when I went to light my grill... my grill didn't work!! It was still really good!!

I followed the recipe just as indicated. Other than a kick to them, they were alittle bland for my liking taking into consideration all the ingredients. I would do this again and modify it some ...

Good stuff! This had a very unique taste, and was much different than the normal shrimp recipes. Very easy, and quick as well.
