Honey Grilled Shrimp
There are two things I always have on hand: pasta and frozen shrimp (peeled and deveined- uncooked- to be specific!) Frozen shrimp are awesome because you can thaw them in a cold bowl of water in about 30 minutes and then cook them in less than 10, depending on the recipe. Not to mention they are extremely light and good for you. When I don't know what to make or have a hard time coming up with something I know shrimp are an option. A couple nights ago I knew I needed to find a quick shrimp recipe and found this one buried in my google reader. I made them tonight and I am obsessed. The worcestershire sauce gives them a perfect grilled taste while the other ingredients provide a subtle sweetness. These are just so good and one of my favorite ways to make shrimp. I did cut back on the butter/honey from the original recipe and I didn't miss it. I think it was perfect and will definitely make this again!
