recipe: spicy grilled shrimp with panko bread crumbs

for the shrimp:
12 large shrimp with shell, uncooked
1/4 C canola oil
1 clove garlic minced
1 jalapeno, minced
or 1 fresno chili if you like it mild
zest of 1/2 a lemon
pinch chili flake
salt and pepper to taste

for the panko bread crumb topping:
1/2 C panko bread crumbs
2 tblsp cilantro, chopped
1 tblsp canola oil
zest of 1/2 lemon
pinch of chili flake
salt and pepper to taste
lemon to garnish

Directions:
1. Combine all the marinade ingredients—everything but the shrimp—and set aside.

2. Using a small, sharp knife, split the shrimp down the middle on the underside—make sure not to cut all the way through but do remove the dirty bits in the process.

3. In a zip-top bag, mix the shrimp and marinade then refrigerate 20-30 minutes.

4. While the shrimp is marinading make the panko breadcrumb topping.

5. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over med-high heat. Add panko and sitr until toasted about 3 minutes. Add cilantro, lemon and chili flake and cook for another 30 seconds. Remove from heat and let cool.

6. Heat grill or grill pan to med-high heat. Once hot, brush grates with a little canola oil and place the shrimp flesh side down. Cook 1 minute, then flip and finish shell side down for another 2-3 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp.

7. Remove from grill, arrange on a serving dish, sprinkle with toasted panko, and serve with sliced lemons and cilantro.

Adam’s hints:
—If you’re not familiar with panko, learn more about it here.
—When grilling, you might need to press down with a spatula since they’ll curl a little.
—This recipe can also be made with smaller shrimp, but I like to use large because it’s a fun presentation.
—I also use this marinade on medium peeled and cleaned shrimp: saute over high heat and serve with pasta topped with these bread crumbs. Its a fantastic meal!
