A simple delicious way to grill shrimp. This is from a 1998 Bon Appetit magazine, and they recommend serving Margaritas with the shrimp. How bad can that be?

I have made this many times over this summer as a quick go to meal. I serve it with whole wheat angel hair pasta dressed with a little garlic, evoo, shaved parm and salt and fresh ground pepper. Add a salad and grilled garlic bread and it is aperfect light meal. My husband loves it

My wifes parents bought us beautiful large fresh shrimp for our BBQ a day before. I ahd told them I had a surprise shrimp recipe I wanted to try. With your recipe they were not disapointed. We shared the shrimp with a half bushel of steamed clams and had a wonderful family outing.
