Garlic-Butter Grilled Shrimp

It’s what was for dinner tonight….. I have to say, this shrimp was some of the best I’ve ever had.

It felt like I should be dining in a high class restaurant overlooking a beautiful city as the sun sets with the love of my life. But instead, I was sitting with my love in our homely dining room holding a grumpy, mosquito bitten toddler overlooking a sea of building blocks…. but the taste was all the same.

Exquisite.

Skewer the shrimp onto kabob sticks. Brush generously with the garlic butter mixture.

…. And here’s the secret ingredient that causes an explosion in your mouth. Shake this liberally all over shrimp.

I served a side of green beans fresh from the garden covered with toasted almond slivers and melted butter. So good. Try them sometime when you need something fancy looking but quick and easy.

Stan’s favorite food in the world is pasta so we had homemade Alfredo sauce and penne noodles to the side. A delicious combination.

Happy Grilling!
