Delicious - Awesome recipe!!
This is the best recipe for grilling shrimp I've ever tried! The combination of flavors was amazing...the cilantro and lime made a perfect marinade. The grilled plum was the most surprising... I wasn't sure what to think about grilled plum with Shrimp but let me tell you it was incredible. I marinated the shrimp but also poured the remaining marinade over the kebabs before they went on the grill. (just have a deep enough dish to allow for run-off. Try it, you'll like it!
