Preparation

  • Heat a gas grill to medium high or prepare a medium-hot charcoal fire. Grill the skewers (covered on a gas grill, uncovered on a charcoal grill), flipping once, until the shrimp are just cooked through, about 4 minutes total.

Make Ahead Tips

The shrimp can be skewered up to 1 day ahead and marinated up to 4 hours ahead and refrigerated.
