Chipotles give a zippy flavor Honey giving it a sweetness making it a perfect finger licking food for entertaining. Tweeked from Weber. Serve as an appetizer or over rice for a main meal. I served this with Lime Cayenne mayonnaise Lime Cayenne Mayonnaise. It went great with it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine the honey, chile pepper, garlic and salt. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes or in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove from the marinade and discard any remaining marinade.
  2. Thread the shrimp through the tail and head (2 or 3 per skewer) onto small metal skewers or soaked wooden skewers. Strong rosemary stems are good to use as skewers.
  3. Grill over Direct High heat for 2 to 4 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Arrange skewers on a serving dish and sprinkle with the cilantro.

I served these at my football party too (along with the peanut chicken skewers) and these were gone in minutes. So good, the sweet and spicy combo with the shrimp were outstanding. Thank you for making me look good!

My Grandson and I made these a few weeks ago for his mother's birthday dinner. What a success.

I dislike it when people review a recipe and they've made changes to the original but this time I just have to beg for forgiveness, as we were out of honey and we used maple syrup instead of honey. Sorry!

These were fabulous and I doubt that I will use any other marinade for grilled kabobs. (Of course, will try the honey next time, as I usually always have some on hand)
