Buttery Chili Lime Grilled Shrimp

Yum!  I forgot how much I love anything chili-lime flavored.  It is intense and so delicious.

Ingredients (use more or less depending on how many shrimp you’re using):

3-4 Tbsp butter, melted

juice of one lime

1 tsp chili powder

1 heaping tsp minced fresh ginger

1 clove garlic, pressed or minced

pinch of salt and pepper

1/2 to 1 pound uncooked shrimp (I used medium sized), peeled and deveined


In a small bowl combine everything except the shrimp.  Set aside about half of the butter mixture for serving.

Thread shrimp onto skewers (my favorite!), brush with butter sauce, and grill over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until shrimp turn opaque pink.  Baste occasionally with butter mixture.  Remove skewers from the grill and serve over hot rice with the reserved butter.

Garnish with additional lime wedges if desired.
