- Whisk together all the rest of the ingredients (except for the cilantro) then pour mixture over the shrimp. Cover and place in fridge to marinate for 3+ hours.
- Place 5 shrimp on 4 metal skewers then heat grill or grill pan to a medium-high heat and grease to keep the shrimp from sticking.
- Once grill is hot, place skewers on grill then use a basting brush to baste the shrimp in the marinating liquid while they cook. Cook for 2 minutes per sides, until pink and tender.
- Squeeze fresh lime juice on top and garnish with cilantro!
