Grilled Garlic Pepper Shrimp

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by canarygirl

Succulent shrimp, bursting with flavor and a healthy kick of spice. The skewers can be made ahead. Try it with mixed vegetables, red pepper, onion, zucchini, whatever you like. Prep time includes marinating time.

Loved this easy marinade! Added onions and peppers to the shrimp and it was really tasty. The lime really livened it up!!! Thanks for posting. Barb
