Rum Glazed Grilled Shrimp

Delicious for summertime grilling. A light and tasty glaze. If using wooden skewers, soak in lime juice or white wine for some extra flavor.



Step: 1

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

Step: 2

Mix together the honey, lime juice, spiced rum, orange zest, orange juice, ginger, cilantro, salt, black pepper, and cornstarch in a large bowl until the glaze is smooth and the cornstarch is thoroughly blended with the rest of the ingredients. Pour half the glaze into a smaller bowl for basting. Rinse and pat the shrimp dry, and gently stir into the large bowl to thoroughly coat the shrimp with the glaze.

Step: 3

Remove from the glaze, and discard the used glaze. Thread 5 shrimp onto each skewer, and sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

Step: 4

Grill the shrimp until bright pink and opaque and the glaze has cooked onto the shrimp, about 4 minutes per side. Baste with additional unused glaze before turning the shrimp over.
