Garlic Grilled Shrimp | Delish D'Lites

The weather is beautiful lately, and that means I’m refusing to use my kitchen as much as possible.  Warm weather makes me to want to grill all day, every day!  There’s something about grilling that makes anything taste better. The smokey char of an open flame does something magical to food, and these garlic grilled shrimp are no exception.

Garlic shrimp sauteed in a pan are delish, but throwing them on a grill takes them to another level.  These garlic grilled shrimp are better than anything you’ll get in a restaurant, and much more affordable to make at home.  Plus, shrimp cook so quickly that you can make this dish in less time than it will take you to drive to a local restaurant.
