  1. Heat a grill to medium-high heat. 
  2. Put the shrimp into a glass bowl. Whisk the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and pour 1/2 to 2/3 if it over the shrimp. (Reserve the remaining marinade to brush on the shrimp during grilling.) Allow the shrimp to marinate for only 8 to 10 minutes or the lime juice will begin to "cook" the shrimp. Grill the shrimp, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side while brushing with the reserved marinade. I use a silicone brush. Remove the shrimp from the grill to a platter and serve garnished with lime wedges.

Cook’s Note

When "fanned", the tails of the shrimp will curl up like a scorpion as they cook. Way cool for presentation! The shrimp can be served on Grilled Bok Choy Salad, if desired. Serve 3 shrimp per person for an appetizer course or 6 for an entree salad (odd numbers look better).
