Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
  2. In a small saucepan combine jelly, garlic, lime juice, Worcestershire, jalapeno and chilies. Cook over medium heat until jelly melts.
  3. Thread shrimp onto skewers, about 4 per skewer if using large shrimp.
  4. Brush both sides of shrimp with jelly mixture and place on a tray to marinate for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat grill on high and sprinkle shrimp with salt on both sides.
  6. Grill shrimp for 3 minutes per side, brushing with marinade again before turning. Reduce time for smaller shrimp.
  7. Place remaining sauce in a serving dish for dipping.

First time for us to grill shrimp and I looked at many recipes and chose this one. Really glad as I liked the sweet and spicy. I used apple jelly as I could not find the other one. Only thing next time I will increase the amount of sauce as we ended up not having enough for dipping but it was perfect. Thank you

Made tonight for fathers day & it was a hit. Very easy to make and not to spicy. Both kids and adults loved it. I doubled the recipe & barely had enough glaze for 2 lbs of shrimp.
