Spicy Grilled Shrimp Skewers

READY IN: 36mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

I suggest to use fresh shrimp for this as frozen thawed will create a watery marinade, do not marinade for longer than 30 minutes or the acid in the lemon juice will "cook" the shrimp, adjust the cayenne to suit heat level, I have left the Tabasco as optional you may add it or omit --- this shrimp is very good!

Made these for my Derby Party yesterday and everyone RAVED!! They were still talking about them this morning. I didn't marinate them for more than 10 min., I was nervous they would be overcooked. Came out great. Highly recommend!
