Taste Testing

A photo in a magazine showed a platter of grilled shrimp that looked delicious. The caption read "Grilled Shrimp with ginger, chili flakes, honey, garlic and lemon." No recipe, no amounts, nothing.

Undaunted I assembled all of the above along with what the Brit "cookery" books call "a knob of butter" and started heating it up. I then threw in eight, good-sized shrimp and cooked them. When they were done, I spooned them out of the sauce, cranked up the heat and reduced it a bit. I served the shrimp over white rice with the sauce over the shrimp.

Next time, less honey, more ginger and perhaps minced real garlic. But it was good, just not as good as it could be. If you know this sauce, let me have the recipe, please!
