1 can (13.5 oz.) coconut milk
1/3 cup NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar—Red pepper
1 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
2 large cloves garlic, minced
Grated peel of 2 limes
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper (optional)
8 to 10 skewers (8 to 10-inches)

Preparation

Stir in Nakano seasoned rice vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and lime peel. Pour over shrimp and shake bag gently to coat. Seal bag and refrigerate 4 hours, turning bag over once.
