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.

½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried chili pepper flakes

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.
