Lime Shrimp Skewers

1 lb. large shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails left on
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. honey
1/3 c. fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground red pepper
1/4 tsp. grated lime peel

Equally divide shrimp among skewers; place on a plate and set aside. In medium saucepan combine remaining ingredients over medium heat until butter is melted, stirring constantly. Remove 1/2 cup sauce mixture and use it to brush over both sides of shrimp skewers; set aside sauce remaining in saucepan. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat; add shrimp skewers and cook two minutes. Brush shrimp with any sauce remaining from 1/2 cup used to brush on skewers. Cook shrimp two – three more minutes, or until pink and fully cooked. Remove skewers to platter. Heat reserved sauce in saucepan, then pour over shrimp skewers and serve immediately. Garnish with slices of lime if desired.
