Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp Kebabs

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Cooking Light, Food Porn, Grilling, Healthy, Recipes

I’ve just made the discovery that I do, in fact, like seafood. Just don’t like it when it’s prepared badly. So I’ve been excited to start trying different recipes. This is my first attempt ever at grilling shrimp. I just couldn’t let a beautiful day like yesterday pass by without sitting outside grilling and eating. I’ve still got a few kinks to work out (like being able to tell for sure when it’s done without it getting over or underdone), but it shows a lot of promise. And it’s healthy, too. I can learn to love this! :)

    Try marinating the ingredients in the teriyaki (maybe diluted with some ginger thrown in) 30 minutes before grilling.

    This is one of the most delicious shrimp recipes I have ever seen! They look simply awesome. I think it will work with soy sauce, too.

    Usually I stick to salads most of the time during summer, but this has inspired me, thank you!
