Diet Food - Yeah right!

So I'm dieting again for the umpteenth time. I have been successful following the South Beach Diet. As far as diets go, it's not that bad. I'm going to be sharing recipes that should fit into the restraints of the diet and here's one here. Plus it's got the word mojo in it and that's just cool!

Grilled Shrimp with Orange and Habanero Mojo

Habanero Mojo:
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon fresh or pickled habanero chile, seeded and chopped
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
Coarsely ground black pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
8 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 wooden skewers, soaked in water 2 hours

1. To prepare mojo, combine orange juice, olive oil, chile pepper, garlic, cilantro, mustard, salt and pepper.

2. To prepare shrimp, combine olive oil and garlic. Thread 2 shrimp on each skewer and brush sides with oil mixture.

3. Prepare grill. Grill shrimp on a hot grill 2 minutes on each side, brushing with the remaining oil mixture. Serve with a drizzle of Habanero Mojo. Serves 4 as an appetizer.

Yum! This sounds so good. If anyone tries it and likes it or doesn't like it, let me know.
