Delicious for summertime grilling. A light and tasty glaze. If using wooden skewers, soak in lime juice or white wine for some extra flavor.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Mix together the honey, lime juice, spiced rum, orange zest, orange juice, ginger, cilantro, salt, black pepper, and cornstarch in a large bowl until the glaze is smooth and the cornstarch is thoroughly blended with the rest of the ingredients. Pour half the glaze into a smaller bowl for basting. Rinse and pat the shrimp dry, and gently stir into the large bowl to thoroughly coat the shrimp with the glaze.

  • Remove from the glaze, and discard the used glaze. Thread 5 shrimp onto each skewer, and sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

  • Grill the shrimp until bright pink and opaque and the glaze has cooked onto the shrimp, about 4 minutes per side. Baste with additional unused glaze before turning the shrimp over.

Easy and tasty but I made it in the oven so it was probably not as good as it would have been on the grill! Keep for summer time... Read More

Tried the glaze on Mahi Mahi and baked it (poured 1/2 the glaze on top) - delicious... saved 1/2 the glaze heated it until thick and bubbly and poured over mahi when serving. This is a keeper for sure! Read More

This was overall pretty good. And we will make it again but I think that the the cornstarch didn't work. We could taste it a little and feel it. The flavor without the cornstarch was good though. Next time i will do this as a marinade for about 30 minutes ahead of time. Minus the cornstarch. Read More

I made these when it was too cold out to grill so I put them in the broiler and they turned out just fine. I also used white rum because that was what I had on hand. Very good-nice flavor. Read More
