  • For the Shrimp, mix first 12 ingredients in small bowl. Place shrimp in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add marinade; turn to coat. Refrigerate 30 minutes

  • Meanwhile, for the Guava Cream, microwave guava jelly on HIGH 20 seconds to soften slightly. (Do not let boil.) Stir jelly until smooth. Cool slightly. Beat cream cheese with jelly until well blended and smooth. Set aside. For the Annatto Oil, heat oil in small saucepan on medium-low heat. Add annatto seed; cook and stir 5 minutes or until oil is a red-orange color. Cool

  • Remove shrimp from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread shrimp onto metal skewers. Grill over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes per side or until shrimp turn pink. Remove shrimp from skewers
