run, don’t walk to the store, buy what you need to make this today. i found this awesome recipe here .
HONEY GARLIC GRILLED SHRIMP
1 bottle (8 oz) Italian salad dressing (get the good stuff)
1 cup honey
1/2 tsp minced garlic
2 lbs uncooked medium shrimp peeled and deveined (we didn’t use frozen)
that’s all the ingredients folks!
combine the salad dressing, honey and garlic and set aside 1/2 cup for later. pour the marinade into a large baggie and dump the shrimp in. put the baggie in a casserole dish so you don’t dribble in the fridge.
**see my note below on how long i marinated the shrimp in the fridge. directions say for 30 minutes, but i did overnight + a day. no biggie here. reserve the 1/2 cup marinade reserve and put that in fridge too.
drain and discard the marinade. throw the shrimp on the barbie and throw the reserved marinade on top of it. this is what ROF did although the recipe called for much more delicate maneuvers. worked for us. grill on each side only about 1 – 1.5 minutes per side. when they start to turn white but get that nice honey char on the outside – they’re done.
we had couscous and grilled corn on the cob on the side. plenty left over for lunches the next day. i also picture this to be a fantastic appetizer.
easy, flavorful + scrumptious grilled shrimp! my new shrimp go-to recipe. i can’t believe i just used the word go-to. i hate that phrase. #saveit #loveit
if you try this, snap some pictures so i can fancy this blog up with some step by step pics.
