The Secret Ingredient


  • 1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons NESCAFÉ CLÁSICO 100% Pure Instant Coffee Granules
  • 1 teaspoon MAGGI Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 1 pound raw large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small red onion, peeled, halved and cut into 1-inch wedges

Make It

Step 1

Combine orange juice, honey, rice vinegar, coffee granules and bouillon in large bowl. Add shrimp; stir to coat. Cover; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat grill to medium-high; lightly oil grate.

Step 3

Remove shrimp from marinade. Pour marinade in a small saucepan. Cook on high heat for 10 minutes or until slightly reduced. Set aside.

Step 4

Thread about 4 shrimp, 2 bell pepper pieces and 2 to 4 onion wedges onto 8 (12-inch) skewers. Grill, basting with cooked marinade constantly, for about 5 minutes or until shrimp turn pink on one side. Turn shrimp; grill, basting constantly, for an additional 3 minutes or until shrimp are completely pink. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro, if desired.
If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 20 minutes before threading to avoid scorching.
Be sure to remove shrimp from marinade after 30 minutes as the acid from the citrus cooks the shrimp. Recipe performs best on a grill. Do not recommend using a grill pan.
