Sweet and Sticky Shrimp

This recipe was really good, although I wish I had cooked them on skewers.  I put them on foil on the grill and they got a little overcooked and shrunken.  It would also be nice to have a little bit of honey to drizzle over at the end of cooking.  Also something that would be good is coating the shrimp in cornstarch and then marinating.  So many ideas....

Sweet and Sticky Shrimp
from The Novice Chef

1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup honey
juice of 2 lemons
zest of 1 lemon
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
chopped cilantro as garnish

In a large bowl, whisk together hoisin sauce, honey, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper.  Toss shrimp in sauce and allow to marinate for 30 minutes to 4 hours (covered in the fridge).  Heat grill to medium-high heat.  Thread shrimp on to skewers, in through the head, out through the tail.  Lightly oil the grill with cooking spray.  Grill for 6-7 minutes, flipping half way through cooking, until cooked through.  Remove to a platter and top with chopped cilantro.
