Weekly Recipe Attempt: Boy Meets Grill

shrimp2During this blistering heat wave in Orange County, it was just too hot to cook inside.  It was also too hot to cook anything that took a long time.  I saw this recipe on good old FoodNetwork.com that seemed perfect.

Weekly Recipe Attempt:  Ginger-Soy-Lime Marinaded Shrimp

I usually chicken out when it comes to shrimp.  I've always used pre-cooked shrimp, which works great for shrimp cocktail, but ends up making grilled shrimp that tastes like leather.  I decied to try cooking the shrimp from raw shrimp.  And boy did I make the right decision.

This dish was incredible.  No leather taste here.  And, believe it or not, I even used the left overs in a salad for lunch the next day. 

It was quick and easy.  It was light in flavor and calories.  It was perfect for the heat, and will be perfect for any last, end-of-the-summer barbeques that you plan on throwing.

I give this recipe a 9 out of ten.

    That sounds so delicious. I use a simple ginger/lime marinade on salmon. I would love to try with salmon, since I never seem to have fresh shrimp on hand. Thanks for the tip!
