Grilled Shrimp with Honey, Lime & Mint Glaze

This tasty meal not only comes together quickly but we used the same recipe as a glaze on the shrimp & as a dressing for a fruit salad. I also liked it mixed into jasmine rice on the side. It has a sweet & tangy summery flavor, that one could almost call tropical. For two people this glaze recipe made enough to cook the shrimp, dress the fruit salad & have a little more left to serve on top.

Coat the shrimp with the Honey Glaze. Grill on skewers or an oil grilling basket or screen on direct medium-high heat. Shrimp should take about 2 - 3 minutes per side depending on size. Do not overcook. Serve with a little extra glaze drizzled over the top.
Serves 2

Use any extra glaze as a dressing on the fruit of your choice.

We used strawberries, peaches & horned melon.

Fingah lickin' good...nice trio of flavourings. When the shrimp forms the letter C, they're cooked....when the shrimp form the letter O - overdone! I see C's all around.

Those beautiful pictures are making me hungry. Shrimp is good any way, at least that's what I think.

I love this recipe. One suggestion I have is that you try using the galilee starthistle blossom honey from Holy Food Imports. I find it to be one of the best honeys money can buy.
