Before getting started, make sure you have everything you need by checking out our grilling section for everything from spices and rubs to a brand new grill!

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Grilling Time: 2-4 Minutes

1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon minced canned chipotle chile peppers in adobo
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 pound extra-large shrimp (16-20 count), shelled and deveined
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro leaves

1. In a large bowl combine the honey, chile peppers, and salt. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes or in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

2. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).

3. Remove the shrimp from the bowl and discard any remaining marinade. Thread the shrimp onto skewers, three per skewer.

4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the shrimp over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until slightly firm on the surface and opaque in the center, 2 to 4 minutes, turning once. Remove from the grill and sprinkle with the cilantro. Serve warm.
