The recipe serves four people.

There are some ingredients you will need in addition to the marinade (the ingredients are shown below).

These are: 16 to 20 extra-large shrimp and 4 skewers.

It will be much easier to marinate the shrimp if they are thawed, deveined, rinsed, and patted dry before they are placed into the marinade.

In a small jar with a lid, or even in a bowl with a lid, whisk together the ingredients for the marinade, which include:

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (2 limes)
1 tablespoon lime zest
1 teaspoon chipotle chili pepper
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon honey
Salt and black pepper, as per your own preference

Before you grill the shrimp, it is recommended that you reserve about half of the marinade to be used as a sauce to accompany the cooked shrimp.

In order to marinate the shrimp properly, the other half of the mixture can be transferred to another container, or even a Ziploc baggie, that can be kept in the fridge.

 
Marinate the shrimp in the half of the marinade that you are going to discard for 15 to 30 minutes.
 
I would not recommend marinating the shrimp for any longer than 30 minutes.
 
When the shrimp are marinated, they are skewered on skewers and placed on the grill once they are ready.
 
As shrimp cook so quickly on the grill, it only takes about 6 minutes for them to be cooked.
 
When the shrimp have reached the stage of turning pink, they are ready to be taken off the grill and served.
 
Fresh cilantro and/or parsley, as well as lime slices are some of the garnishes that would work great with this dish.
