  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Remove shells from shrimp, except for tails. Butterfly shrimp by cutting down the length of the back (shallow cuts).
  3. Step 3

    Place all other ingredients in a mini-chopper or food processor and process well to form a chili-garlic sauce.
  4. Step 4

    Pour the sauce over the shrimp in a medium bowl, and gently stir/toss to mix. Allow it to marinate for 5 minutes while your oven heats up. Turn oven to broil setting.
  5. Step 5

    Lay shrimp on their sides on a baking sheet. Place sheet on the second or top-most rung of your oven under the broiler and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until shrimp are sizzling and steaming, then turn shrimp to cook the other side. If you have any left-over marinade, spoon it over the shrimp. Broil another 3 to 4 minutes, or until shrimp are plump and opaque.
  6. Step 6

    Garnish with wedges of lime and a sprinkling of fresh coriander/cilantro. ​
