Ingredients
  • 2 cups chopped cilantro
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon coriander
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1½ cups baby spinach leaves
  • 2 poblano peppers, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
Method
Soak ten 8-inch bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the cilantro, spinach, garlic, poblanos, cumin, coriander, water and lemon juice in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Blend until the harissa is slightly thinner than pesto. Season with salt to taste. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with 1/4 cup of the harissa. Transfer the remaining harissa to a small bowl. Thread 2 or 3 shrimp onto each skewer. Grill the shrimp over moderately high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 1 minute per side. Serve the shrimp with the remaining harissa. Serves 4
