Grilled Shrimp

Be sure to use a clean piece of foil for your cooked shrimp.

You won’t believe how easy these grilled shrimp are. I went looking for an easy recipe when my husband said he would like to have grilled shrimp for dinner. And these hit the mark. I dare you find an easier grilled shrimp recipe. :)

    This is very close to how my husband makes his — but he doesn’t even bother with skewers anymore. Shrimp is SO easy to grill (and the only way I like it!).
