Jalapeno- Lime Shrimp

Jalapeno gives these shrimp a bit of a kick in this simple marinade for grilled shrimp kebabs.


4 pounds large shrimp, peeled, deveined and butterflied
1 cup thawed orange juice concentrate, undiluted
2 teaspoons grated lime rind
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup honey
4 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 cloves garlic, minced
4 fresh jalapeƱos, seeded and chopped


1. Combine all ingredients in a large zip bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Remove shrimp from bag; reserving marinade. Pour marinade into a small saucepan and heat to boiling; turn off heat and let cool down.

2. Heat grill or broiler.

3. Thread shrimp onto 12 skewers. Place skewers on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done, basting frequently with the cooled marinade.


*You can substitute 3 pounds of skinless, boneless chicken breast or pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes, for the shrimp, if preferred.
