We make a flavorful marinade of jalapeño, lime, garlic, and spices to flavor the shrimp before they go on the grill, setting some of the mixture aside to finish the dish. To get a good char on the shrimp without overcooking them, we pack them tightly onto skewers and sprinkle one side with sugar. Then we start them over a hot fire, sliding them over low heat to finish cooking through gently. We toss the cooked shrimp with the reserved marinade and sprinkle them with fresh cilantro for a final hit of flavor.
