Honey Shrimp Skewers

with the temps rising, i can't wait to post gobs of grilling recipes in the days to come! this is one area of cooking i turn over to my hubs but enjoy doing the prep & point...i prep, you grill. i found this recipe in a coastal living magazine i was flipping through {pause...i really am turning into my mother} & can't WAIT to make it. i'm in pensacola tonight & might bring back some joe patty shrimp to whip this up when i return!

{honey shrimp skewers}
*taken from coastal living

ingredients {in order of use}
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 12 slices {6 ounces} prosciutto, halved lengthwise
  • 1 pound large shrimp
  • 24 nectarine or pineapple wedges

1. combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl.

2. wrap 1 piece of prosciutto around each shrimp. thread shrimp & nectarines onto a *skewer. place skewers in a shallow dish; drizzle with 1/2 cup soy sauce mixture on both sides of shrimp.
cover & refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. preheat grill to medium-high heat. remove skewers from marinade & grill 3 minutes on each side or until shrimp are cooked thru. serve with remaining soy sauce mixture!

*don't forget to soak wooden skewers in water for about an hour or so so they don't catch fire on the grill!
