  • 2 pounds 21-25 count shrimp, cleaned with tails off (large or extra large)
  • 6 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 6 tablespoons molasses
  • 6 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon (or tablespoon) red pepper (depends of your heat preference)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  1. Combine all ingredients (except for shrimp) in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  2. Split sauce into 2 bowls, one for brushing your cooking shrimp and one to use for a final brushing at serving.
  3. Skewer the shrimp, brush with some of the sauce, then grill over medium-high heat, keep basting the shrimp with the sauce until cooked. Depending on the size of shrimp you use about 2-3 minutes per side. Watch for flare ups...the honey and molasses with excite your grill!!
  4. If you are big into dipping shrimp in sauce make extra sauce...increase recipe by 50% and dip away!
