There is a huge
factor with this shrimp dish!
This recipe, the source is a mystery to me; for shrimp on the grill is super simple and comes together easily.
Shrimp marinates in a zesty sauce of garlic, lemon juice, oregano and parsley, plus a little sweet chili sauce, with a sprinkling of crushed peppers and hot sauce for heat. Then its all quickly grilled to perfection.
I will be making this again soon for Bill to grill ~ we thought it was simply delicious!
With a side of stone-ground garlic grits ~ it doesn't get much better than this!
