Planning a barbecue? Get the grill going early, and your guests can savor these special shrimp skewers before the main course.

Ingredients

20
(6-inch) bamboo skewers
1/2
cup honey
1/4
cup butter, melted
1 1/2
teaspoons garlic-pepper blend
1
tablespoon chopped fresh chives
1
bag (2 lb) frozen uncooked medium (31 to 35 count) shrimp, peeled (tail shells removed) and deveined, thawed

Directions

  • 1 Soak skewers in water 30 minutes to prevent burning. Meanwhile, heat gas or charcoal grill.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix honey, butter, garlic-pepper blend and chives until thoroughly combined. On each skewer, thread about 3 shrimp, leaving 1/4-inch space between each. Brush honey-butter mixture on both sides of shrimp.
  • 3 Place skewers on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are pink. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

Look carefully at the sizing on the bag of shrimp. Medium shrimp should be 31 to 35 per pound. Not all manufacturers label shrimp the same, but most will tell you how many shrimp per pound.

If you can’t find 6-inch bamboo skewers, use heavy-duty scissors to snip the skewers to the desired length.
