Jerk Shrimp with Armenian Cucumber and Kiwi Salsa

Okay... here is another recipe from that favorite cookbook: Bon Appétit Fast Easy Fresh
and I used some of that Armenian cucumber in it!

1 lb. LARGE SHRIMP, shelled with tail left on

Toss shrimp with the oil, lime juice and jerk seasoning and allow to marinate for 10 minutes.
Heat a cast-iron grill pan until very hot and then grill shrimp for a few minutes on each side until just opaque in the center... a total of about 5 minutes.

Armenian Cucumber-Kiwi Salsa

4 1/2 tsp. LIME JUICE
1 1/2 tsp. chopped and seeded JALAPENO
1 tsp. peeled, minced fresh GINGER
1/2 tsp grated LIME PEEL
1 c. peeled and chopped KIWI
1 c. seeded and chopped CUCUMBER (regular or Armenian)
1/4 c. thinly sliced GREEN ONIONS
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh MINT
SALT and PEPPER, to taste

Combine all ingredients and season to taste with salt and pepper.
This can be made several hours ahead. Refrigerate.

Serve with Jerk Shrimp.
