  • - vegetable oil cooking spray
  • - paprika
  • Directions:

    1. In a food processor or blender, combine the garlic, ginger, lime juice, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt (if using), red pepper to taste and yogurt to make the marinade. Blend well and place in a glass bowl until ready to use.

    2. One hour before starting to cook, add the shrimp to the yogurt marinade. If using wooden rather than metal skewers, soak them in warm water for 30 minutes to prevent burning.

    3. Light a grill or preheat the broiler. Lightly coat a grill rack with cooking spray. Thread the shrimp on the skewers and sprinkle with paprika. Grill the shrimp 4 to 6 inches from the source of heat for 1 minute. Carefully turn and sprinkle again with paprika. Cook until the shrimp are cooked through, another 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately.
