We are very fortunate that we located close to the ocean where we can take advantage of fresh seafood. This shrimp dish makes a fantastic addition to any cookout or party. Its super simple and comes together easily. Of all the ways to prepare shrimp, the grill delivers the best flavor. The secret to grilling shrimp is to keep a close eye on them. Overcooked shrimp are rubbery so take them off the second they are done. This was our lunch today. It was delicious and simple to make.
