Garlic Grilled Shrimp is perfect for summer so simple and easy to make takes only 15 minutes. Because shrimp is so tender, be sure and very important not to over-marinate or overcook.
Note:- If the skewers you are using are made from wood like mine, then you’ll want to soak them so they don’t catch fire from the grill (or oven, or broiler) before the meat is finished cooking. Just for few minutes.
