Here's a great shrimp dish I make quite often. The original recipe came out of an old Weight Watcher cookbook, but as always (something I learned from my Grandma) I usually throw in a few extras to make it taste better and substitute some ingredients, but it's still healthy cooking.

Peel and clean shrimp. Combine all other ingredients. Add peeled shrimp to sauce and let stand 15 minutes. Grill shrimp over hot coals, basting with sauce. Be careful not to overgrill!
