Catchy title, ugh? Easy grilled shrimp seasoned with coconut rum, ginger and lime. Feel free to make a coconut rum drink while cooking shrimp, after all it's 5 o'clock somewhere. Posted for ZWT5, Caribbean.

    tasty little devils. I marinated in a plastic Ziploc for about an hour and then put them under the broiler for 2 minutes on each side. Served with coconut rice

    Great!! Simple great! The coconut rum shines through and with the ginger, lime, and soy...oh my!! Easy to put together and grilled up in no time. Great weeknight meal. Even my man who is not a fan of coconut loved this! Made for ZWT 7 - Count Dracula and His Hot Bites

    These shrimp are delicious! I loved the flavor of the coconut from the rum and was surprised how much it came through. I made a half recipe and we just devoured them. I reduced the ginger a bit because I don't like it overly strong. I served this with jasmine rice and grilled zucchini. The only change I might make would be to add a little bit of red pepper flakes for some zing. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT 7 for the Food.commandos
