Very tasty, easy barbecue shrimp recipe. The lime and cilantro really set it off. Recipe from a grocery store marketing firm called Try Foods International. I have used http://www.food.com/recipe/ainsleys-barbecue-spice-rub-444453 for the barbecue spice with great results.

    I made this for an office lunch BBQ. Everyone loved it. It was simple to make. The only thing I had trouble with was the BBQ Spice. I don't know what that is, nor did I read any of the review (until now). I simply used a spice rub that I picked up in the bulk section at my market. It was tasty.

    Yummy. I used Chili Sauce instead of ketchup. And I didn't have time to actually marinate them, or baste them...I just skewered 'em, schmushed 'em into the sauce, then put them on the grill. They turned out great. The kids thought they were perfect as-is, but I think they were a bit too sweet; next time I'll omit or sharply reduce the quantity of honey, and maybe add a bit more heat (i.e. cayenne) to my barbecue spice rub.

    Really complimentary flavours that all worked so well together. I cooked using U6 Australian Tiger prawns with 3 per skewer (half a pound per skewer) and enjoyed along with a nice glass or two of Chardonnay.
