The Yucatan cuisine is filled with grilling, sauces and marinades. You can see the Yucatecan commitment to marinades in all manner of dishes: camaron ceviche, pulpo en escabeche (octopus first cooked in olive oil, then marinated in acid overnight), and marinated beef that’s then grilled, chopped up, and fried. Here we have grilled shrimp with a great dipping sauce. Influences? Spanish, Mayan, Asian and Lebanese.
