  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

What to Do

  1. Peel shrimp, leaving tails intact; devein, if desired. Combine oil and remaining 7 ingredients in a bowl; stir in shrimp. Cover and chill 1 hour.

  2. Remove shrimp from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread 9 shrimp onto each skewer. (Thread tail and neck of each shrimp onto skewers so shrimp will lie flat.)

  3. Spray cold grill rack with cooking spray; preheat the grill over medium-high heat (350 degrees to 400 degrees). Place skewers on rack; grill, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until shrimp turn pink.


This adults-only shrimp can be baked instead of grilled, if you'd rather. Just preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove the shrimp from marinade, discarding marinade. Place the shrimp in an ungreased 10-inch by 15-inch rimmed baking sheet, and bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink.
