This recipe came from a customer friend from work who often cooks for the local Eagles Lodge. While I usually prefer shrimp battered and fried, this is a nice alternative for a healthier shrimp entree. I think it might also be a good side dish to accompany a nice steak and some veggies. I’m sure there are other good ways to use the grilled shrimp in other recipes – maybe a stir fry?
