  • Shrimp:

  • 2

    tablespoons red chile powder, such as ancho or New Mexican red

  • 2

    tablespoons garam marsala

  • 2

    tablespoons canola oil

  • Juice of 2 lemons

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1

    pound large shrimp (21/24), shelled, deveined, tails left on and patted dry

  • Cilantro-Mint Chutney:

  • 1

    cup tightly packed fresh cilantro leaves

  • 1/2

    cup tightly packed fresh mint leaves

  • 4

    scallions, chopped

  • 1

    Thai chile, finely minced

  • Zest of 1 lime

  • 1 to 2

    tablespoons canola oil

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Special equipment: 6-inch skewers, soaked in cold water for at least 1 hour

Directions

For the shrimp: Whisk together the chile powder, garam marsala, canola oil, lemon juice in a medium bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and toss to coat in the mixture. Let marinate for 15 minutes. Prepare a charcoal grill for direct grilling, high heat. For the chutney: Combine the cilantro, mint, scallions, chile, 1 tablespoon each honey and canola oil, lime zest, and some salt and pepper in a food processor. Process to make a smooth paste. Taste; add honey, if desired, or more oil to make a sauce that will cling to the shrimp. Thread 2 skewers through 3 shrimp so that the shrimp lay flat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until golden brown and slightly charred on both sides and just cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove the shrimp to a platter and serve with the cilantro-mint chutney.
