Cilantro Lime Grilled Shrimp are delicious. Shrimp tastes so good when they are grilled. This marinade recipe makes them even better! Cilantro and lime go so well together for shrimp (and chicken)! Skewers are a great way to grill shrimp, and my favorite way. However, you can also use a grill basket to cook the shrimp on the grill. Don't forget the marinating time-I like to marinate them for four hours. Grilling is our favorite way to cook meat and vegetables, from the garden, all summer long. Grilling all year long is something we love, though. Our beef tri-tip recipe on our blog is one we make every winter for Christmas, it has a holiday flavor and I love it!
