- 3 tablespoons honey

step 1: Combine brown sugar, lemon juice, molasses, basil, vegetable oil, mustard, honey, clove, ranch dressing, chili powder, and garlic in a large bowl. Toss in shrimp to coat, cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours. Meanwhile, soak wooden skewers in hot water to prevent burning on the grill.
step 2: Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
step 3: Thread shrimp tightly on to skewers. Cook on the top rack of the grill for approximately 4 minutes, or until the shrimp turns pink on one side. Flip shrimp and cook for an additional 2 to 4 minutes, or until there are no signs of grey. Use a fork to remove shrimp from the skewers.
