Grapefruit-Glazed Shrimp with Grapefruit Salsa


2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon grapefruit zest

1 grapefruit, juiced (approximately 1/2 cup)

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined



Make the grapefruit salsa and chill for at least 4 hours. Light the grill or heat a grill pan to medium-high heat. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper. Add shrimp to the marinade, stirring well to coat. Let marinate for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes. Thread shrimp onto wooden skewers. Cook the shrimp until just done, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Brush each side with glaze while grilling. In a small sauce pan, bring the remaining glaze to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, remove from heat and pour over shrimp skewers. Top with grapefruit salsa.
