Best Ever BBQ Shrimp

As you can probably tell, The Loon and I LOVE shrimp.  And we think one of the most amazing ways to prepare it is on the barbie!  Get yourself some nice jumbo shrimp (Gulf, if you can find it), marinate them for 8 hours, or overnight, then fire up the grill…and get ready for a huge taste sensation!   100% Loon Approved!

This Best Ever BBQ Shrimp explodes with flavor! The marinade is easy to make, but so flavorful. Magic happens once those babies hit the grill. Soooo amazingly delicious!
