“These shrimp are a glamorous departure from burgers and hotdogs, yet are just as easy to fix. They only take a few minutes on the grill, so plan on cooking some other veggies to go with the shrimp while you have the grill hot. These shrimp can be the star attraction of a meal, or just serve one or two as a terrific appetizer for even greater things to come. Prep time indicated does not include the time marinating in the refrigerator.”
