18 large shrimp
2 tsp. mesquite seasoning
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. lime juice
Marinate shrimp in seasoning, olive oil, and lime juice for 20–30 min.
Grill or sauté as desired.
Corn Salsa
3 cups corn (Green Giant Niblets — drained)
1 small red bell pepper finely diced
1 jalapeño pepper minced
12 sprigs cilantro chopped
3 green onions sliced
1 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. olive oil
Salt and white pepper for taste.
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate.

BBQ Sauce
1/2 small yellow onion diced
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. mesquite seasoning or liquid smoke
2 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1 tsp. white pepper

Sauté onion in olive oil until transparent. Add remaining ingredients and simmer about 15 minutes and set aside.
Optional Quick Tip: Instead of above, use your favorite bottled sauce.

Divide corn salsa equally onto six appetizer plates. Place three grilled or sautéed shrimp on top of corn salsa. Drizzle BBQ sauce over shrimp and garnish with cilantro sprigs. Can be served as an appetizer or first course.
