Summer Cooking: Easy BBQ Cilantro Lime Shrimp

May 20, 2016

Just like every other Maine spring, the weather went from snow last week, to the 70's this week. That means we  get out the grill and start enjoying the best season we have. Grilling doesn't have to just be reserved for burgers. We love eating fresh shrimp, and it's such a quick, easy meal for a summer supper. 

Have you ever marinated your shrimp? If not, you are in for a treat. The mild flavor of the shrimp is perfect for adding a layer of deep seasoning, by marinating for 30 minutes. The best part is how quickly the shrimp cooks on the grill. Three minutes and you are done! It's the perfect meal for a warm summer night.
