Thai Grilled Shrimp

June 1, 2011

Whenever I want a quick and healthy meal, I turn to seafood, especially shrimp.  Shrimp is widely available and an alternative to higher priced fish.  I like this recipe because the fragrant marinade pairs well with the sweet succulent shrimp.  When those skewers hit the grill, the smell of lemongrass fills the air.  I like to serve this with white rice and a simple Asian slaw.

Your Thai grilled shrimp looks amazing! They look so tasty, I love the combination of lemongrass with seafood, I normally just add loads of garlic with chilli's but I'll give this a go.
