    This recipe was found on the website. It is great when served with Mango-Lime Relish (see recipe). Preparation time does not include the 2-3 hours needed for the shrimp to marinate.

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Clean & trim shrimp & make 1/4-inch-deep incision on the top of each one (the side without the feet) from tail to head, then under cold running water, open the incision & wash away any brownish-black matter (including the thin, dark vein).
    2. 2
      In a large nonreactive) stainless steel or glass bowl, combine lime juice, pineapple juice, rum, cilantro & garlic, then salt & pepper to taste.
    3. 3
      Add shrimp, cover the refrigerate, allowing shrimp to marinate for as least 2 & not more than 3 hours.
    4. 4
      Remove shrimp from the marinade & set the shrimp aside, discarding everything else.
    5. 5
      Run a skewer through each shrimp, skewering it in the tail area & also in the thicker, upper area, fitting 8 shrimp on a 10-inch skewer. IF USING WOODEN SKEWERS, DO NOT LEAVE ANY GAPS BETWEEN THE SHRIMP!
    6. 6
      Place shewered shrimp on the grill over medium-high heat & grill about 3-4 minutes on each side, until the shells turn bright red & the meat is an even, opaque white.
    7. 7
      Remove shrimp from the grill & serve on a bed of Mango Lime Relish, either skewered or not, as you prefer.

      I can't wait to serve these at a PARTY! OMGoodness, they are awesome! The soak in the rum marinade gave a subtle hint of flavor; I used 1 lb. of shrimp (21-25 sized) and really liked the flavor from the Bacardi Select black label dark rum that I used. Next time, I may re-heat and reduce the marinade, to glaze the shrimp with right before removing them from the grill. I like that I had never had anything like this before! Thanks so much for sharing, Sydney Mike. This will become a go-to recipe to impress!

      These were great. The cilantro really rounded out the flavors, but the entire thing was so delicious. Although it's still pretty rainy here, I had to grill these for full effect. But even so, they were quite a treat. Thank you, Sydney Mike. Made for the Best of 2010 tag game.
