This citrusy marinade hails from Cuba, where it’s used to season a classic pork dish known as lechon asado. It also makes a wonderful marinade for chicken, fish, and shellfish, such as these shrimp. To secure the shrimp for easy grilling, thread four or five of them onto 2 skewers each before cooking. Soaking the skewers prevents them from burning while the shrimp cook.
- 6 pounds shrimp (peeled and deveined)
- Sun Basket mojo marinade
- Bamboo or wooden skewers
Marinate the shrimp
- Rinse the shrimp and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Shake or stir the mojo marinade to reincorporate. In a large bowl, measure out ⅓ cup mojo marinade for every 1 pound shrimp. Add the shrimp and toss to coat; season with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes but no longer than one hour.
Cook the shrimp
- Build a charcoal fire or light a grill for medium-high heat. Set the shrimp on the grill rack and cook until firm and cooked through, 1 to 3 minutes per side.
