Ingredients:
12   ounces uncooked shell-on medium shrimp (about 30-40)
2   lemons
2   limes
1/2   cup orange marmalade
1   tablespoon vegetable oil
1   large garlic clove, pressed
1   tablespoon snipped fresh parsley
1/4   teaspoon ground red pepper
Directions:
  1. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails on. Thread shrimp on four 12-inch skewers; place in large resealable plastic food storage bag.
  2. Using Juicer, juice lemon to measure 1/4 cup juice; juice limes to measure 1/4 cup juice. Pour juices into Small Batter Bowl. Add orange marmalade and oil. Using Garlic Press, press garlic into batter bowl. Snip parsley using Kitchen Shears. Add parsley and red pepper to ingredients in batter bowl; whisk using Stainless Steel Whisk until blended.

Cook's Tips: For an attractive presentation, thread scored lemon and lime wedges onto the ends of each skewer. The flavor of the grilled fruit wedges nicely complements the shrimp.

The shrimp should not be marinated for more than 1 hour or the texture will become soft and mushy.

To easily peel and devein the shrimp, insert the split blade of the Grapefruit Knife on either side of the shell on the back of the shrimp. With a rocking motion, cut and split the shell up to the tail to easily peel off the shell, leaving tail intact. With pointed end of the split blade, lift out vein. Rinse shrimp under cold running water.
