Grilled Shrimp with Coriander Dipping Sauce

The original recipe came from Bayona Restaurant in New Orleans and was published in a recipe column in our newspaper. After reading it I decided that I would change it so it was fewer steps/less trouble. I've served this several times and it ALWAYS disappears!

Ingredients

THE SHRIMP

4 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 1/2 tsp
ground coriander
1 tsp
sea salt
1/2 tsp
chili powder
1/2 tsp
ground red pepper
3 lb
large or medium shrimp, peeled and deveined-tail on, rinsed,drained & blotted

THE DIPPING SAUCE

2 large
shallots - finely chopped
1 c
white wine
1 tsp
orange zest
1/2 c
orange juice
4 Tbsp
red wine (or sherry wine) vinegar
1 tsp
ground coriander
10 Tbsp
butter-softened
4 Tbsp
cilantro-dried
1/2 tsp
sea salt
-
freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine "Shrimp" ingredients - olive oil, 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander, 1 tsp salt, chili powder, red pepper in a large zip lock bag. I use the 1/2 gallon "standing" Glad bag.
2
Add shrimp to bag, mix well, and refrigerate.
3
Have ready a large size grill pan designed to keep contents (like vegetables or small seafood)from falling into the grill.
4
For the sauce, place chopped shallot, orange zest and juice, wine, vinegar, and coriander in a small saucepan, heat to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until liquid is reduced to about 6 tbs - about 30 - 40 minutes. It does not stick, but stir occasionally.
5
Using a Whisk, whisk in softened butter by the spoonful until sauce is emulsified and creamy. This is like a beurre blanc sauce.
6
Stir in cilantro and remaining salt and pepper. Keep warm
7
Prepare grill for high heat. Place grill pan containing the loose shrimp over grill. Continue to turn the shrimp with grill spatula frequently until cooked through and then put on/in a serving dish
8
Drizzle some of the sauce over the shrimp and put the remaining sauce in a matching dish for dipping. Put toothpicks or serving picks next to shrimp.
