Habanero BBQ Shrimp

['1 cup apricot preserves', 'Juice of 2 limes, plus wedges for serving', '1 habanero pepper, seeded and small diced', '2 tablespoons soy sauce', '2 small garlic cloves, finely grated', '1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger', '2 pounds extra-large shrimp, peeled and deveined', 'Vegetable oil', 'for brushing']

In a small bowl, mix together the apricot preserves, lime juice, habanero, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Transfer half the sauce to a large zip-top bag and add the shrimp. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Heat a grill to high or heat a large grill pan over high heat. Brush the grates or the pan with oil. Soak bamboo skewers in water and a wedge lime.
Thread 5 shrimp onto a bamboo or metal skewer (discard the sauce in the bag) and grill until charred on both sides, 4 to 5 minutes. Do not overcook, please.
Serve with the remaining sauce on the side for dipping and lime wedges.
