Citrus, honey and herbs give shrimp big flavor in these special grilled skewers.
Updated Dec 17, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (4 medium)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh lemon or lime peel
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 24 uncooked medium shrimp (about 1 lb), peeled, deveined
  • Lemon or lime slices, halved, if desired
  • 8 bamboo skewers (5 or 6 inch)

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all ingredients except shrimp and skewers. Add shrimp to bag. Seal bag; turn to coat shrimp. Place bag in large bowl. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to marinate but no longer than 8 hours.
  • 2
    Soak skewers in water 30 minutes to prevent burning. Meanwhile, heat gas or charcoal grill.
  • 3
    Drain shrimp; discard marinade. Thread 3 shrimp and 3 lemon slices on each skewer, leaving 1/4-inch space between each shrimp.
  • 4
    Place shrimp on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are pink. Serve warm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For an alternative method to the skewers, place the shrimp and lime wedges in a grill basket (grill "wok"). Grill as directed above. Transfer the grilled shrimp and lime to a platter and guests can use decorative picks to serve themselves. (See photo on the cover).
  • tip 2
    You can shave several minutes off the prep time by purchasing shrimp already peeled and deveined.
