Sugar Baked Shrimp

This is a sweet & sour dish. The sugar adds a crunch.

1 cup sugar (that is not a typo)
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cumin
1 large clove of garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
24 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails on

Fresh lime wedges

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Put either parchment paper or a silpat on a cookie sheet.

Stir everything except the shrimp and lime together. A few at a time, roll the shrimp in the sugar mixture and set them on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the sugar has started to caramelize in spots. take the shrimp out of the oven and turn them over . squeeze the lime juice over them and serve right away.
