This is another favorite grilled shrimp dish around my house. It’s quick, easy, and wonderfully exotic. What sets the recipe apart is the dipping sauce that accompanies the lightly marinated shrimp. Taratoor is a creamy, nutty, lemony white sauce made from sesame paste and lemon. Tahini (sesame paste) is widely available at Middle Eastern markets, natural food stores, and in many supermarkets. For a cool presentation, arrange the shrimp on a platter, cut side up, and spoon the sauce
