Fiery Skewered Shrimp

This easy-to-make entree gets its great taste from a simple yet spicy marinade. You can broil the kabobs or throw them on the grill outside. We like to serve the shrimp on a bed of greens.

    I added extra spice because I did not find these "fiery", but otherwise an excellent recipe.
