    Step 1:
    In a small bowl combine all the marinade ingredients and mix well.

    Place the raw, shelled and deveined shrimp in a plastic resealable bag and pour in the marinade.

    Seal and refrigerate for 60 minutes. Too long and the shrimp will start to "cook" in the acid.

    After 3 - 4 minutes lift the lid, wiggle the marinated grilled shrimp skewers with your tongs, flip them over and close the lid for 3 - 4 minutes.

    You should be seeing nice grill marks and they should be turning pink and opaque.


    After 3 - 4 minutes, lift the lid and remove the grilled shrimp to a serving platter.
