  1. 1 pound (16-20 per lb.) jumbo shrimp, shell-on, deveined (sold as "raw, ready to peel")

  2. 1/4 tsp black pepper

  3. 3/4 tsp salt

  4. 1 tbsp ketchup

  5. 1 tbsp brown sugar

  6. 1 tbsp lemon juice

  7. 1 tbsp vegetable oil

  8. 1 tsp chili powder

  9. 1 tsp cumin

  10. 1/4 tsp allspice

  11. 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste lemon wedges

  1. Rinse and drain shrimp well. Combine with all ingredients in a mixing bowl, and toss until the sugar is dissolved and the shrimp are coated. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes in the fridge. Preheat a skillet on medium-high flame until hot. Add the shrimp and sear for about 3 minutes, until cooked. The shells will get charred, and browned, but the meat inside will not, so don't worry about the outside getting too dark - they should look like they were grilled over coals. Remove to a plate, and when cool enough to handle, serve warm with lemon.
