– Fire up the grill to 375.

– Brush the citrus oil onto the skewered shrimp. Dust Sizzle rub over each side once thoroughly brushed.

– Place shrimp skewers on the grill.

– When the shrimp begins to turn pink, slap some sauce onto either side.

– Finely chop one jalapeno with a small handful of cilantro while the shrimp cooks.

– Let the shrimp come to 140 internal. Be sure not to overcook the shrimp, or else the texture becomes rubbery.

– Place skewers on a bed of arugula, Juice any leftover lime on top, sprinkle with jalapeno, cilantro, and enjoy!
