     12 lg Or jumbo shrimp, preferably

  I *think* this came from Sunset Magazine.  There's nothing hot in the
  ingredient list, but it would be real easy to put some cayenne or
  mashed up chili peppers in the marinade.  Probably more authentic as
  well.
  
  This attractive Thai presentation looks best with shrimp with their
  heads still attached.  Try it with large tiger prawns or fresh
  carids. Pound the garlic, shallot, galangal and lemon grass to a
  paste in a mortar with a pinch of salt.  Transfer to a shallow bowl
  and stir in the lemon juice, soy sauce and wine.
  
  Using a small knife or scissors, split the shrimp shells down the
  back, but leave attached.  (If the heads are present, carefully
  separate the shell where the tail joins the head, then split the tail
  shell open.) Devein if necessary.  Toss in the marinade and let stand
  for 30 minutes to 3 hours.
  
  Thread single shrimp lengthwise on skewers, starting at the tail end
  and coming out through the head.  Push the skewer on through until
  the pointed end extends at least 3 inches beyond the shrimp. Handling
  by the pointed ends, grill until the meat is opaque.  To serve, place
  the orange or apple cut side down on a plate and insert the pointed
  ends of the skewers. Garnish with coriander sprigs and lime wedges.
  
  Serves 4 as an appetizer or side dish.
