2. In a 6- to 8-inch frying pan over low heat, stir butter and garlic occasionally until butter melts, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix or brush shrimp with 2/3 cup of the butter mixture.
3. Lay shrimp, spread open, on a barbecue grill over a solid bed of hot coals or over high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds). Close lid on gas grill. Cook, turning once, until shrimp are opaque but still moist-looking in thickest part (cut to test), 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a platter as cooked.
4. Warm remaining garlic butter and spoon over shrimp. Add salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze lime onto shrimp to taste.
