  • 2 Soak skewers in water 30 minutes to prevent burning. Meanwhile, heat gas or charcoal grill.

  • 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.
