Lemon, Garlic and Basil Shrimp Skewers

READY IN: 9mins
Recipe by Leslie

Use this recipe as a template for other shrimp skewers. If you don't have honey mustard, stir a little honey into Dijon. Limes would also work well instead of lemons. And if you're finding your home-grown chives or parsley getting out of hand, substitute them for the basil. These need to marinate for 45 minutes before cooking.
