    Soak the skewers in water for at least one hour before assembling the lollipops.

    Mince the Ginger and Garlic and finely as possible

    Chop the Cilantro and Scallion (separately) roughly into small pieces

    Combine the Ginger, Garlic, Cilantro and scallion with the Canola Oil to create a marinade for the shrimp.

    Add a pinch of salt and pepper to season the marinade. Add the cleaned and butterflied shrimp to the marinade and let sit for 10 minutes.

    Assemble the lollipops, 3 pieces of shrimp per skewer.

    Push the sharp end of the skewer through both the top and the tail of each shrimp to insure that they are securely attached.

    Take the remaining marinade and pour over the finished lollipops.

    Combine all of the ingredients, except for the black and white sesame seeds, and mix in a blender.

    Stir in the black and white sesame seeds.

    Keep in refrigerator until time of service.
