  • 2 lbs. peeled, deveined raw Jumbo shrimp (16-20 count per pound)
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup minced fresh chives
  • ¼ cup minced fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  1. To make the marinade, whisk together all ingredients except shrimp.

  2. Marinate shrimp at room temperature in half of the dressing for 20-30 minutes, or in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours. Reserve the remaining marinade to use for basting later.

  3. Thread shrimp onto kabob skewers (if using wooden skewers, make sure that you soak the skewers in water for about 30 minutes before adding the shrimp).
  4. Grill the shrimp over high heat for a total of about 3-5 minutes, flipping halfway through. Use the remaining dressing to baste the shrimp while they cook.
  5. Garnish with additional herbs just before serving, if desired.
