  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2-3 tsp Cajun seasoning

*Place shrimp in a self-sealing plastic bag.  For marinade, in a small bowl combine oil and remaining Cajun seasoning.  Pour marinade over shrimp.  Seal bag.  Marinate in refrigerator for one hour, turning bag occasionally.

*Drain shrimp, discarding marinade.  Thread onto skewers.  Grill for 7-9 minutes or until shrimp are opaque, turning once halfway through grilling.
