Garlic-Herb Shrimp on the Grill



Nothing beats grilling in the summer
and this is 
another great recipe 
for your grill!



Super simple, is this recipe that comes together quickly and easily, all the better for you to enjoy another summer evening!






Lemon juice and herbs are exactly what puts this shrimp over the top.  Serve it with fresh steamed broccoli, corn on the cob or rice, or grilled veggies, the choices are endless.



Ready to move on to the grill!



You may prefer to peel the shrimp before grilling; however, cooking the shrimp with the shells on makes them remarkably flavorful ~ just peel and dig in at the table!
