TCC's No Recipe Grilled Shrimp

Submitted by The Cynical Cook

Another skewer recipe, created in a moment of near desperation that I would not have enough protein during a BBQ (a significantly overblown fear).

When asked whatthe recipe was later, I couldn't actually recall. After some trial and error, I think this is it.

It is staggeringly, depressingly easy.


  • 1/3 cup JApanese Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Mirin
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • Several shakes of Ground ginger
  • Couple drops of rice wine vinegar
  • 1 bag of Peeled shrimp
  • Plastic ziplock bag


  1. Add Soy sauce, mirin, honey and ginger into plastic bag. Zip up and shake until honey is dissolved.
  2. IMPORTANT STEP: Taste marinade. It should be sweet but not cloying. If it's not sweet, add more honey/mirin. This is essential so it caramelizes slightly.
  3. Put peeled shrimp into ziploc bag and compress to get all air out. Marinate for three hours.
  4. Skewer shrimp and grill on the barbie or underneath a hot broiler until they turn pink.
  5. Serve with beer.
