Asian Honey-Tea Grilled Shrimp


  • 1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled, de-veined
  • Salt
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup brewed double-strength orange spice tea, cooled
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon peeled, finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a plastic bag, combine tea, honey, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger and pepper, to make marinade. Remove 1/2 cup marinade; set aside for dipping sauce. Add shrimp to marinade remaining in plastic bag, turning to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes or up to 12 hours.
  2. Remove shrimp from marinade; discard marinade. Thread shrimp onto 8 skewers, dividing evenly. Grill over medium hot coals 4 to 6 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and are just firm to the touch, turning once. Season with salt, to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare dipping sauce by placing reserved 1/2 cup marinade in small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly reduced. Stir in green onions.
