Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter X

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Xia, Gan Shao which translates to Sweet and Sour Shrimp! I know I’m stretching the alphabet a bit thin with this one, but I am crazy about shrimp! I improvised a little, so I apologize in advance. Hopefully this will become one of your all time favorites. 
XIA, GAN SHAO
Ingredients:

1 pound of jumbo shrimp

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon crushed pepper flakes

1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning blend

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup lime juice
Instructions:

Put shrimp in a baking dish, single layer. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over shrimp. Marinate 1 hour. Remove shrimp from marinade and place in a nonstick vegetable grilling basket. Discard marinade. Preheat outdoor grill for medium heat. Grill 2 minutes on each side, or until opaque. Do not over-cook! Serve with Asian Sesame dressing infused with Sriracha sauce.
