      Soak the wooden skewers in water for 20-30 minutes.

      To prepare the dip, mix together the lime juice, pepper, salt, fish sauce, and sugar, in a small bowl, mixing well; adjust seasonings to taste (add a little water or sugar if dip seems too tart).
    6. 6
      Thread shrimp onto wooden skewers; lightly coat each finished skewer with oil or cooking spray, and place on grill over medium coals or heat (or place on pan under broiler), and cook approximately 5 minutes, turning once, or until shrimps are pink, firm, and slightly charred in spots.

      Restaurant quality recipe!! The marinade flavors the shrimp and once they are grilled, the dipping sauce compliments the shrimp. Made this for just myself and ate the whole thing. Next time will make to impress company since it is an easy recipe to do.
