Firecracker Shrimp

This great tasting recipe was made a while back when I was a member of a site called RecipeZaar. The original recipe author is named TeresaS The recipe description reads "These shrimp certainly have some fire, but if you really like them spicy, adjust the cayenne pepper according to your taste. This is from a cookbook called "The Backyard Barbecue Cookbook""  And she is right, these shrimp do have fire to them!!

2 pounds large raw shrimp
2 tablespoons oil (olive oil)
2 teaspoons black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes
1 teaspoon ground sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Shell the shrimp, leaving tail shells on.
Skewer six shrimp on each of eight metal skewers.
Brush with olive oil.
To make the dry spice mixture: Combine ingredients and sprinkle over the shrimp on both sides.
Cook on a hot barbecue grill for 4 minutes each side or until shrimp are pink and tender.
