    Place the shrimp in a bowl and add the vegetable oil, chipotle pepper sauce, honey, and lime zest. Marinate up to one hour under refrigeration if desired.

    To prepare the salsa, combine the corn kernels, bell pepper, red onion, cilantro and lime juice, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Reserve.

    Heat grill on high heat, add shrimp.  Cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until just cooked through. Let cool slightly and slice each shrimp in half lengthwise. Reserve.
