Grilled Shrimp with Roasted Garlic-Cilantro Sauce Recipe

clean eating recipe
*Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (you’ll need the oven to roast the garlic). 

*Peel, devein and rinse the prawns. Pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. Place the prawns in fridge until ready to grill.                                                     

*Trim top of the garlic head off; leave the garlic intact and do not peel.  Drizzle with a little olive oil. Roast the garlic in the 400 degrees F-heated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until slightly tender and fragrant. When ready, remove from oven. Let cool briefly. Peel and crush or chop the garlic finely.                                                                     

*In a small bowl, combine the garlic with the cilantro leaves, lemon juice, white wine and chili sauce (or chili flakes). Whisk together and set aside.                                             

*When ready, heat a cast-iron grill or griddle to medium high. Dress the prawns with some olive oil and grill for 3-4 minutes or so on each side. You want to achieve some char, but be careful not to overcook.     
                                                                                       
*Remove from heat and coat the prawns with the roasted garlic and cilantro sauce. Alternatively, serve the sauce on the side instead.                                                       

This shrimp is great served tapas-style next to other small plates or if you want to serve it for dinner, try it next to plain rice or couscous with some green beans and a simple Mediterranean salad. Or, do it Italian-style and add pasta! Simply make more of the sauce (double or even triple the amount) and toss the extra sauce into just cooked pasta.
