The Chef: Ian Fleischmann
The Restaurant: Strawberry Moon, Miami Beach
The Dish: Prawn Kebabs


Jumbo shrimp- 2# Shelled Weight
1 tbsp ground coriander seed
1 tsp ground cumin seed
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 cup olive oil
3 ea lemon zest
3 tbsp lemon juice
3 garlic cloves – grated
1 tsp minced ginger
Sweet Peppers

Ingredients for Zhug Sauce:

1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch parsley
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp coriander seed
1 ea Jalapeno
1 tbsp salt

Method of Preparation:

  • Combine spices, lemon zest, juice, garlic, ginger and olive oil.
  • Add shrimp and toss. Let sit for 2 hours (any longer and the shrimp will start to cook from the lemon juice).
  • Skewer the shrimp and place a large sweet pepper at the top to hold them on.
  • Sprinkle with salt right before going onto grill. (Grill with charcoal, it has the best flavor.)

Method of Preparation for Zhug sauce:

  • Wash parsley, cilantro, and jalapeno.
  • Remove stem from jalapeno, then roughly chop everything. (Stems and all with herbs.)
  • Place everything except ice into a blender.
  • Blend on high until smooth, use a couple cubes of ice to control the temperature of the heat coming off the blender. (If the sauce heats too much it will change colors.)

To Plate:

  • Top shrimp with extra salt and olive oil, then serve still on skewers.
  • Serve with Zhug sauce.
