Ingredients

2-1/2 tbsp (37 mL) Dijon mustard
1-1/2 tbsp (22 mL) fresh lemon juice
2 tsp (10 mL) ground coriander
2 tsp (10 mL) ground cumin
1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1 lb / 454 g (about 24) large shrimp, peeled and deveined

Directions

Stir together mustard, lemon juice, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) coriander, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cumin, and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper in small bowl. Set mustard dipping sauce aside. Combine salt with remaining 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) coriander, 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) cumin, and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper in large bowl. Add shrimp, tossing to coat. Preheat grill to medium. Thread shrimp onto four long skewers. Place shrimp on grill and cook until opaque throughout, about 1 minute per side. Serve at room temperature or chilled with mustard dipping sauce. Serve on a bed of watercress with garlic cole slaw, steamed sugar snap peas, cornbread, and fresh fruit for dessert. Cook’s Clue: If you want to cook these indoors instead of grilling them, set the broiler rack 4 inches (10 cm) from the heating element. Place the shrimp on a pan and broil them for 1 minute on each side. Health Hint: Mounting evidence suggests that the type of fat found in shrimp—omega-3 fatty acids—is beneficial for the heart and protects against heart attack. While shrimp do contain significant amounts of cholesterol, they are quite low in saturated fat, the real culprit in raising blood cholesterol. Shrimp contain impressive quantities of vitamin B12 and the antioxidant mineral selenium as well. Makes 4 servings.
