Firecracker Shrimp Recipe

This recipe is my all time favourite shrimp appetizer. I brought it to a birthday party Friday night and as usual it was a hit!  So many flavours!  


  • 1-2 lbs cooked, deveined, jumbo shrimp with tails on
  • 1/4 cup cilantro 
  • 1/4 cup chives (I got mine from my garden!), chopped
  • 2 tbsp organic garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh, organic ginger, minced 
  • 1 tsp grated organic orange zest
  • 1 organic orange (for zest), freshly squeezed to provide 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce 
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp Manuka honey
  • 1 tbsp dark sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1/2-1 tbsp sriracha Asian hot chili sauce 


  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor.  
  2. Marinate shrimp 30 minutes to 1 hour prior to serving.  Keep refrigerated.
