Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • *Cook s Note: If using dehydrated chiles soak them in warm tap water for 1 hour or till soften (this is usually only take 20 minutes, but I found with the smaller chiles, like the red Thai, that is take about an hour or so to fully rehydrate).

  • Place both the red Thai chiles and the bell peppers in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. Transfer chiles to a large mixing bowl and add the sugar, orange zest, rice wine vinegar, honey, salt, ginger and coriander and mix together thoroughly.

  • Skewer shrimp and place in a large casserole dish. Pour the marinade over the shrimp, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to marinate for 15 minutes.

  • Preheat your grill while your shrimp is marinating.

  • Remove shrimp from fridge and grill over medium high heat for about 1-2 minutes per side. Glaze with the marinade the last minute of grilling. Remove to a platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Pineapple Ginger Salsa:
  • Peel, core, and dice pineapple.

  • In a medium bowl, combine red onion, pineapple, cilantro, lime juice, ground ginger, and salt and pepper. Mix together. Cover and chill.
