  • 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.

Expert Tips

  • 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).
  • You can shave several minutes off the prep time by purchasing shrimp already peeled and deveined.
