We are big on grilling at our house, especially on holiday weekends. This Thursday our son graduated from high school Summa Cum Laude, and will be heading to Georgia Tech in August to begin college. I can’t tell you how proud we are of him! With family in town for graduation, and this being Memorial weekend, I was looking for quick and delicious recipes with easy clean up.

Whether you are cooking for one or a group, give this grilled shrimp recipe a try, and double or triple the recipe as needed. Add different spices if you wish based on your personal tastes; the sky is the limit. Grilling in foil is easy, and clean up is a snap.
