Randi’s Favorite Grilled Honey Shrimp

I made this many, many years ago, and Randi (and Danny) both loved it. I think I took it from an Oprah Magazine dated September 2001. The first time I made it, I put it in a baking dish under the broiler in the oven. The second time I made it, I grilled it. I remember Randi saying it was the “best thing she had ever eaten.” So now I will definitely make it again, and I will see if maybe Noah and Hannah like it, too. The recipe is adapted from “Yellow Velvet Soup with Prawns” by Melissa Kelly.


1/4 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp. honey

1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro (I didn’t use)

1/2 lb. extra large or jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Combine chili powder, lime juice, honey, and optional cilantro.

Add shrimp and marinate for 1 hour in fridge.

Grill (or broil in pan in oven on low setting) 2 min. on each side.

Season with salt and pepper.
