Recipe Friday – Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp

Standard

As I have said before I love shrimp!! Anytime I find a good recipe I have to try it and this one is no exception. I found this awhile back and tried it. The first time I did it…I’ll be honest I let them stay on too long and they dried out. The next time I did it they turned out amazing. The only advice I have is to watch your time on them because they will dry out quickly if you’re not careful. Enjoy!!

Chicken seems to be the go to in my house. It’s a great meat to put on to cook and be able to go do something else and be able to have a meal once you are done with everything else. Any piece of chicken can be used with this recipe. This one seems to be a favorite in my house because we all love garlic and butter 🙂
