Chili & Pepper Grilled Shrimp

About four months ago, I posted this recipe for Spicy Grilled Shrimp.  We wanted to make this recipe again but we did not have all of the ingredients we needed.  Rather than run to the store, we adapted the recipe for what we had and for what we thought went well together.  The result was delicious!  I am not sure which variation I like the most!!

Chili & Pepper Grilled Shrimp  
Adapted from Spicy GrilledShrimp by AZRP February 2008

2 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 T garlic powder
2 t salt
2 t chili powder
2 t black pepper
1 t cayenne pepper
3 t lime juice
4 T olive oil

Rinse and drain shrimp set aside.  Mix all remaining ingredients.  Add shrimp to the marinade, stirring to coat shrimp evenly.  Put shrimp on skewers.  Grill over direct heat for about 2 minutes on the first side.  When they start to curl up, flip them and watch until they curl fairly tight and remove immediately.  Some of the shrimp won't curl tight but you can pretty much tell when they are done.  Don't overcook!  Let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
