1. Tropical Garlic Shrimps

What you need:

Pour marinade in a large re-sealable plastic bag. Place shrimp in the bag and coat with marinade. Seal and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours. When ready, remove shrimp from bag, shake off excess and discard excess marinade. Thread shrimp onto skewers then cook on a pre-heated grill over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes or when the center is no longer transparent. Garnish with lemon slices if desired.
