Lemon, Garlic and Basil Shrimp Skewers

"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.

    Due to a time crunch I wasn't able to let my shrimp thaw out properly or marinade for the full time span and so I think the flavour was a little watered down. Definately something I want to try again, but even so, it was quite yummy with some spaghettini!
