Seafood Recipe: Thai Shrimp Spirals

20 fresh or thawed frozen large shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed
1/2 package Puff Pastry Sheets, thawed
1 egg
1 piece ginger root, peeled and minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 limes
5 tbsps low-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsps minced fresh cilantro leaves
2 tbsps water
2 tsps honey
1 1/2 tsps sesame oil
All-purpose flour

How To Make:
1. Grate 2 tsps zest and squeeze about 1/4 cup juice from the limes.  Stir the zest, juice, cilantro, garlic and ginger in a small bowl.
2. Place the shrimp into a medium bowl.  Add 1 tbsp soy sauce and half the lime mixture and toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes.  Reserve the remaining lime mixture for the dipping sauce.
3. Heat the oven to 400F.  Beat the egg and 1 tbsp water in a small bowl with a fork.
4. Sprinkle the flour on the work surface.  Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 10-inch square.  Cut into 20 strips.
5. Skewer each shrimp with 1 wooden skewer.  Starting at the top, wrap 1 pastry strip around each shrimp, slightly overlapping the pastry and ending just before the tail.
6. Place the skewered pastries onto 2 baking sheets.  Brush the pastries with the egg mixture.
7. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown.  Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes.
8. Beat the reserved lime mixture, remaining soy sauce and water, the honey and sesame oil in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.  Serve with the pastries for dipping.
