The Basic Fundamentals

Soaking the wooden skewers in water will help curtail uninvited grilling flare ups. Do not skip this step. 

16 {6-inch} wooden skewers
2 lbs {26-31 count} fresh wild American shrimp, peeled & deveined
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp minced chipotle peppers in adobo
1 Tbsp adobo sauce
3 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
Freshly ground pepper
Lime wedges

Soak the wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. Thread the shrimp on the skewers & place in a shallow dish. Whisk together the honey & the next 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Pour the marinade over the shrimp & brush the mixture on all sides to coat well. Chill 2 to 24 hours. Grill the shrimp over Medium-High heat {350 to 400 degrees} 3 minutes per side or until no longer pink. Sprinkle with the cilantro & freshly ground pepper. Serve with lime wedges.

The Extra Point

Omit the skewers & sear the shrimp in a cast iron skillet indoors for a fast weeknight meal solution. Serve with hot cooked rice & roasted vegetables or top over a baked, sweet potato with a handful of lightly dressed mixed greens.

How To Juice Fresh Limes

Limes can be used in both sweet & savory foods pairing well with just about anything making them extremely versatile. When choosing them from produce bins, select fruit with a bright, uniform color. Pick them up & gently press them in your hand. They should feel firm with a slight give to them. If the zest is desired, take care of that task first by running the outer portion over a microplane grater, then slice the limes in half for juicing. Extracting it is simple when the correct tool is used.

 When fresh lime juice is needed for recipe applications, it’s important to have the right device that will release every bit. A glass juicer where the reamer is set over a small bowl to collect the juice can be used or my preferred choice is a lime press. These valuable tools are generally coated with a non-reactive finish to prevent the acid from producing off flavors. Citrus halves can be placed in the custom fit compartment then the handles pressed together to extract the juice over a small bowl. It’s efficient enough to press every bit of juice quickly. Once the task is complete, the pulp & seeds, if any, will be left behind. Simply remove the used lime halves & discard them. Before adding the juice to recipe applications, pour it through a small fine wire mesh sieve to collect any seeds or unwanted bits of pulp that may be in the bowl.
