Place shallots, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, lime juice and sugar in a blender, and blend until combined. Season with black pepper, to taste. Place shrimp in a large bowl, pour marinade over them, and let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes. Preheat grill to high. Place in a single layer on a grill pan. Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side, turning shrimp once. (Or, shrimp can be pan-cooked: Heat 2 T. canola oil in a non-stick saute pan over medium high heat. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes, until pink. Serve as a peel-and-eat appetizer or if pan cooking one can use already peeled shrimp.
