Ginger Garlic Grilled Shrimp

I love shrimp, and huge tiger prawns are far and above my favorite kind. Growing up, we rarely had big tiger prawns; but we had seafood at least once a week. I would always ask for shrimp, and I would say about fifty percent of the time I was lucky enough to get it. Plus we always had shrimp cocktail for special occasions; I usually ate more than my fair share.

These days, shrimp is still more of a special occasion food. But, anytime I see wild caught shrimp on sale, it’s a special occasion!

Dressed simply, these succulent shrimp are light and refreshing despite being a hot grilled item. The sweet flesh of the prawn with the bright freshness of ginger and slight spice of garlic come together to create a great appetizer on a warm day. Or, if you’re a party of one, they can serve as your entree!

We hope you enjoy these ginger garlic grilled shrimp as much as Brent, his parents, and I did.
