  • Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high (or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat). Thread shrimp onto 4 (12-inch) metal skewers, leaving a little space between each shrimp. Discard the marinade.

  • Oil the grill grates by holding an oil-dipped paper towel with tongs (or oil the grill pan). Grill the shrimp, flipping once, just until opaque, about 6 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
