Lime Marinated Shrimp

Summer time to me means grillin and chillin! When of course its not 100 degrees and humid out…One of our favorite things to grill is shrimp, it’s so fresh and light on hot summer days. There are so many great recipes for grilled shrimp it was hard to decide which one to make. Since I was going to make grilled veggies I wanted something light to go along. I walked into the kitchen and the limes were singing to me. You know that Lime song they sing. So Lime Marinated Shrimp it was. While listening to my limes sing, my hubby brought me a cold beer. This summer my hubby and I have been experimenting with summer brews and have found some great ones. My new favorite and a great pairing with this Shrimp is Summer Shandy!! 
 Its like Lemonade Beer so good!!

  • 20 uncooked shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 2 limes, also use for zesting zest
  • salt

  • Zest lime or limes... really depends on how much you want , I zested one lime and that was great for us. 
  • Place shrimp in a Tupperware with salt, pepper, dash of cayenne, and the juice of 1 1/2 limes, lime zest and then sprinkle with olive oil. Seal with cover and give a good shake or two. Refrigerate for 30 minutes removing them from the fridge about 15 minutes before you want to grill them.
  •  Heat grill or grill pan over medium high flame/heat, set the shrimp on a paper towel lined plate to absorb some of the excess marinade, a little tip I learned from the O Magazine. 
  • Skewer shrimp.. 5 per skewer ..
  • Grill Shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each side until pink in color and slightly curled. 
  • Serve with lime wedges and some yummy beer.

    Eat and Enjoy!
