So the sun was finally shining and mood's were lifted around here in the Pacific's officially GRILLIN' season!  And with Memorial Day weekend approaching....HERE is a GREAT recipe for you to try out!

Prep Time:  15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 6

1 - pound of medium sized precooked, peeled and detailed shrimp
1 - pound of lean cut sirloin steaks (The least amount of marbling visible, means the leaner it is)
1 - lime (for juice and shredded lime peel)
1 - canned jalapeno, finely minced
4 - tablespoons of garlic, minced (WE LOVE GARLIC)
4 - tablespoons of soy sauce
2 - tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
2 - teaspoons chili powder
1/2 - teaspoon of cayeene
1/4 - cup cilantro, roughly chopped
3 - tablespoons honey

Start soaking your skewers about an hour before you plan to put meat on the grill.  (So they don't catch fire as I can assure you I HAVE DONE BEFORE!!)

Preheat your grill to a medium-high heat around 350 degrees.

Cube up your steak into large bite size pieces.  (not too small or they will fall off the skewers)

  Now start chopping up your ingredients and add them ALL to one bowl except the meat....and whisk...

I 'zest' the entire peel of the entire lime AND squeeze ALL the juice I can get out of the lime once I'm done...ALL into your mixing bowl.

NOW...spread half of your Chile-Lime mixture into the steak bowl...and half into your shrimp bowl.  Toss the meat to coat evenly. 

Next --- we start to skewer them!  I use TWO skewers --- that way they don't fall off as easy while they cook and they ARE SO MUCH EASIER TO FLIP

And....READY, SET, GRILL!  Or in my house....hand them to my hubba hubba and ask him to 'do his thing'!!!

It should take approximately 1-2 min per side for the shrimp and 2-3 min per side for the steak depending on how thick your pieces are.
