Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thread shrimp on 8 10-inch skewers (if using wooden, they might not be as long so you may have to make more; soak wooden skewers in cold water for 30 minutes before threading shrimp onto them) and lay on a jelly roll sheet or any pan that will hold them in one layer.
  2. Marinate shrimp: In a small bowl, mix all ingredients well and spoon over skewered shrimp, cover completely.
  3. Slip into a plastic bag and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.
  4. Grill shrimp: Grill skewered shrimp over ashed coals for 3-4 minutes; turn and continue cooking 3 minutes more until done.
  5. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
