Thai Style Pesto n Grilled Shrimp

1/2 c. basil leaves packed fresh
1/2 c. cilantro leaves packed fresh
1/2 c. mint leaves packed fresh
2 inch piece ginger fresh peeled thinly sliced
1 1/2 tsps. light brown sugar
1/4 c. dry roasted peanuts
1/4 c. lime juice
2 jalapeno peppers seeded n quartered
2 T. canola oil
1/2 tsp. salt or ur taste

1 lb. raw shrimp peeled n deveined
12 bamboo skewers soaked in water 30 minutes before grillling
Using food processor or blender-combine all the 1st group -process until smooth. Presto can be made up to 4 days in advance n chilled. Remove to a serving bowl.
Heat grill to medium high. Thread shrimp onto soaked skewers n grill- turning once- until shrimp turn pink couple minutesper side. Or- set oven to broil - cook shrimp 4 inches from heat- until they are pink -about 2 minutes per side.
Remove shrimp from skewers - serve with the pesto.

Quick to make for when guest show up - presto is already made
Makes 3/4 cups pesto enough for 40 to 50 shrimp
A mistake is sometimes a great creation
