Honey Grilled Shrimp

Let me preface this by saying I do not enjoy shrimp I don't eat anything that lives in water.  However I have made these at several cookouts we have had and always get several compliments.

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 tablespoon ground black pepper
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons dry white wine
2 tablespoons Italian-style salad dressing
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails attached
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce                                   
  1. In a large bowl, mix together garlic powder, black pepper, 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce, wine, and salad dressing; add shrimp, and toss to coat.
  2. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat grill for high heat.
  4. Thread shrimp onto skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head.
  5. Discard marinade.
  6. In a small bowl, stir together honey, melted butter, and remaining 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce.
  7. Set aside for basting.
  8. Lightly oil grill grate.
  9. Grill shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.
  10. Baste occasionally with the honey-butter sauce while grilling.

*Make sure to soak skewers in water for atleast 30 minutes so that they do not burn!
