I didn't make them as kebabs, just grilled them on the grill in a grill pan. I only made 1lb of shrimp and adjusted the recipe accordingly. We loved these, but next time I will reduce the amount of cumin, it was a little overpowering. So yummy!
Shrimp Kebabs with Jalapeño-Lime Marinade
Orange juice concentrate, lime zest, and lime juice give this marinade a bold citrus flavor that pairs well with shrimp, chicken, or pork. Sweet honey keeps the chopped jalapeños from being too overpowering.
