Get Thee to a Grill

Grilled Shrimp Recipe

Spring is in full swing and that means I want to be outdoors as much as possible. I want to do everything I can to enjoy the longer days and fresh air and I can’t think of a better way than to get the family together and get to grilling. Of course, I also want to enjoy myself and not be manning the grill the whole time so my grilling choices have to be quick-cooking and, of course, delicious.

That’s why this Grilled Shrimp recipe is perfect for a family grill night. From prep to finish these are done in under 25 minutes! That means grilling doesn’t have to be a weekend endeavor. These shrimp are great weeknight fare. They have a fantastic sweet-sour-savory flavor combination thanks to the marinade that includes lime juice, seasoning sauce, honey and soy sauce. The shrimp’s firm flesh grills up so nicely and what you have is a succulent dish that leaves plenty of time to enjoy an evening outdoors.
