All shrimp, seafood and fish should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145° using a digital thermometer. Shrimp will curl when cooked through and will be pink, no longer opaque.

Store grilled shrimp in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 days.
Reheat in a skillet with a tablespoon or two of water over medium heat for about 2- 3 minutes, stirring often.
If you would like to make this recipe on the stovetop. Prepare the sauce and cook shrimp in the sauce in a skillet over medium for about 8 minutes, stirring often, until shrimp reaches 145°. You won't get the smoky goodness from grilling but it will still be delicious.
