Grilled Marinated Shrimp with Garlic and Lemon

The end of summer is coming- I can feel it in the air sometimes. But this weekend we were able to enjoy summer at its best- with a grill.

We do not have a grill, but our community center does, so we finally took advantage of it and grilled up some shrimp.

These were quite good. But they cooled off annoyingly fast on the walk home from the community center. However, most people who have grills probably won't have that problem.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp with Garlic and Lemon

  • 1/2 tsp crushed mustard seed
  1. Marinate shrimp for several hours, then place on skewers and cook on grill until no longer pink.

Ohhh...I don't eat fish so I can't try this on shrimp, but I bet it would be killer on chicken! I love garlic and lemon together!

Yummmmmy! I love shrimp more than life itself. For real. It is one of my absolute favorite things. This looks so fantastic - but alas, we don't have a grill, either. I lust after one pretty much every day, though. :)
