Chili Lime Shrimp



  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar
  • ½  teaspoon chili powder
  • 8 ounces shrimp, cleaned, peeled and de-veined  (about 12-14 pieces)
  • 4 skewers



  1. Mix the lime juice, brown sugar and chili pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Add the shrimp to a large zip lock bag or sealable container, pour in the lime juice marinade and mix well to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
  3. Preheat a barbeque grill on high heat.  
  4. Remove the shrimp from the container, discard the marinade,  and add 3-4 pieces to each skewer. Grill a few minutes on each side until shrimps are slightly pink.
***If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 5-10 minutes to prevent them from burning on the grill.
