Here is a recipe I put together. I’ve seen a number of glaze recipes for shrimp, but they all have ingredients that I don’t like, or are missing ingredients I would like included. So, I put my own together, and tried it out. Of course, there was some tweaking of proportions along the way, and here is the finished recipe.
Let me tell you, there are some recipes on the internet that just plain don’t work. They either have these ridiculous proportions that don’t add up, or the instructions don’t make any sense. Or leave parts to the imagination to say the least.
This recipe is guaranteed tested and guaranteed absolutely delicious! In fact, you see the during and after pictures. You can’t taste them, but they sure do look mighty scrumptious!
Honey Lime Grilled Shrimp
- 1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled (approximately 20)
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoons ground ginger
- metal skewers
- In a small saucepan, combine lime juice, honey, Soy Sauce, oil, garlic powder and ground ginger. Mix this thoroughly, and bring this to a simmer over low/medium heat. Once it starts to simmer, remove from heat, and let cool.
- Pour off most of the glaze into a separate bowl large enough to hold all the shrimp. Put the rest in a small container for brushing later. You’ll only need enough to brush each side once. Put the shrimp into the bowl, and thoroughly coat the shrimp. Set this aside for 10 to 20 minutes.
- Skewer the shrimp. I find it’s much easier and more efficient to skewer each shrimp in 2 places, through the tail and the head end.
- Place them on a medium hot grill. Brush each side one more time with the left over glaze. I personally use a skewer rack, but you can certainly place them directly on the grill. You will want to keep a grill glove handy for the metal skewers. Of course, you can use water soaked wooden skewers if you prefer.
- You only need to cook these about 2 minutes on each side. When the shrimp no longer look translucent, remove them from the grill, because they’re done! Shrimp can become overcooked in a hurry, so you don’t want to leave them on longer, thinking this will insure them being completely cooked.
- Pull them off the skewers as I did in the picture below, or serve them on the skewers.
