2 tablespoons ancho chili powder

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 pounds (21 to 24 count) large shrimp, shell on

6 cloves coarsely chopped fresh garlic

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion, divided

Special equipment: wooden skewers, soaked in water for about 25 minutes
