Great Summer Dinner - Grilled Shrimp with Cilantro and Lime

Grilled Shrimp with Cilantro, Lime and Cashews (or Peanuts), very easy, perfect for summertime dinners or entertaining.
This recipe was featured in the August issue of Martha Stewart Magazine - though I changed it a bit to work with what I had.
I used the zest of a few small Key limes, and their juice.
Whisked in some fish sauce, sugar and a little olive oil.
Chopped cilantro, chives, and cashews (the original recipe called for green onions and peanuts, but I only had chives and cashews on hand). I love cilantro so used a lot!
Grilled the shrimp, then tossed with lime sauce, most of the chives, cilantro and cashews (leaving some of each for garish).
Served in a vintage ironstone platter with lime halves, and an antique shell serving spoon.

You can find the actual recipe on Martha Stewart's website.
And Martha herself was on the Today Show on Thursday morning, making this recipe.
It's very good!
