Description

An easy summer crowd pleaser that hits the spot!

Ingredients

  • 6 Tablespoons Molasses
  • 6 Tablespoons Orange Marmalade
  • 6 Tablespoons Lime Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Pepper Or Cayenne Pepper (start With 1 Teaspoon And Work Your Way Up According To Your Taste)
  • 2 pounds Large Or Extra Large Raw Shrimp, Shell And Tails Removed

Preparation

Note: If you are big into dipping shrimp in sauce, make extra sauce—increase the recipe by 50% and dip away!

Combine all ingredients except the shrimp in a microwave safe bowl, stir until fully incorporated. Cover with a plate and heat for 40 seconds or up to a minute, depending on your microwave. Stir well, taste and adjust spiciness to your liking.

Split the sauce into 2 small bowls. One for the grill and one for dipping (you may want to reheat the dipping sauce when serving).

Skewer the shrimp, brush with some of the sauce, then grill over medium-high heat, continuing to baste the shrimp with the sauce until cooked. Depending on the size of shrimp you use, you’ll cook for about 2-3 minutes per side. Watch for flare ups—the honey and molasses will excite your grill!

Serve with the remaining sauce. You can serve as an appetizer or over white rice for an entree.

Enjoy!

Hi Ladymcarthur,

Red pepper, the powder also called cayanne pepper in the US. You could substitute the flakes if you don’t have the powder – or even Tabasco – To me Tabasco makes everythig better lol – for an extra kick you can add some fresh minced ginger as well…hope you enjoy!

1 Tablespoon red pepper….is this red pepper sauce(tabasco?) or red pepper flakes? Sorry, it doesn’t specify and this looks too good not to make this weekend!

This was pretty good! I’m not a big molasses fan, but I really liked the orange flavor in this recipe.

This was great! We used a heaping teaspoon of cayenne and it was perfect for us. Had to use maple syrup because one of us can’t eat molasses. Will use this again and on other fish.

These were very yummy! I served as an appetizer which was a mistake because I wanted more! And didn’t look forward to the main course as much. :)

Oh my, this was really good and really easy to make. I started with the 1 tsp. of cayenne, as was recommended. I’m glad I did because we found it plenty spicy and I think I may actually cut it back to 3/4 of a tsp. next time. A keeper for sure! Oh yeah, to cut down on sticking on the grill, I used non-stick tin foil underneath. Worked great!
