Ingredients

Shrimp:
Taro chips:
Salsa:

Directions

For Shrimp: Preheat a grill to high.

In a large bowl, combine garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, green onions, white wine, and lime juice to make a marinade. Place shrimp in the marinade and marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove shrimp from marinade and thread onto skewers. See Cook's Note*

Place shrimp on a hot grill for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side, or until they turn pink. Do not overcook. Remove from the grill and remove the shrimp from the skewers.

For Taro chip: Place a 10-inch straight-sided saute pan over medium high heat. Add the oil and heat until it reaches a temperature of 350 degrees F. Slice taro root thinly, a little thicker than a potato chip. It is easiest to do this on a mandoline. Once oil is up to temperature, fry the sliced taro root until lightly golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel, salt, and set them side.

For Salsa: Combine tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, and lemon juice in a bowl. Gently fold together. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

To assemble, place 1 shrimp on top of a taro chip and garnish with 1/4 teaspoon of salsa. Arrange on a platter.

Cook's Note

When stringing the shrimp on skewers, we advise not to crowd the shrimp too close together because they will not cook evenly.
