I’m still around everyone and lucky for you I have some great recipes coming your way. I made this one at work a couple of days ago and was a hit. It’s one of those dishes that’s very easy to do but as you can see looks brilliant. So if you’re entertaining, make this and you’ll get some serious brownie points!
S&P to taste
Begin by mixing the zests, orange juice, ginger & honey in small bowl. Set aside.
To prepare asparagus
Trim 2 inches from end of stalks. Cut remaining piece in half. This is going to act as your skewer which will be put through each shrimp. Cut a small piece off each asparagus spear on a diagonal as if sharpening a pencil. (Refer to photo if my English has turned into Irish.) Basically you want to create a sharp end to thread through the shrimp. Curl the shrimp together in a u shape and pierce with a small thin knife. This is to help feed the asparagus through without breaking. Lay all your skewered shrimp on a baking sheet and set aside until ready to grill.
NOTE: You don’t want to cook your asparagus ahead and then try to skewer the shrimp or they’ll break.
I served the skewers on a gorgeous mango salad which makes this dish a great starter or small meal in itself. Go on and impress your friends!
