Grilled Shrimp Recipes

When it comes to healthy eating, shrimp is a great source of protein. It's lean, tasty, and cooks quickly.After you peel and devein the shrimp, thread it onto wooden skewers to make cooking easier; just be sure to leave a little space between each shrimp so that they cook evenly. If you don't have skewers on hand, grill your shrimp in a heated grill pan instead.
