Italian Grilled Shrimp

Italian Grilled ShrimpI’ve been a little lazy in the cooking department lately so I started going through my Pinterest boards and finding recipes. I have tons of recipes pinned but rarely ever make them.  I’ve been eyeing this one from MyFridgeFood for a while so this was my first of the week.  I cannot tell you how amazing they turned out.  They are so flavorful and super easy! I had intended on following the recipe exactly and marinating the shrimp for 2 hours but as things went, I ran out of time. They only got about 20 minutes but there was definitely no lack of flavor.  This is now in our “top 10”!

    I hardly ever cook with shrimp, even though I love them. I’m definitely giving this a try! I have a super simple and yummy shrimp recipe that I’ll have to share with you – it’s one of my go-tos. 🙂
