Today for Sunday Supper we are presenting all of you with some great grilling recipes.  Thank you to Melanie of Melanie Makes and Jennie of The Messy Baker for hosting this grilling event for the Sunday Supper Movement.

I am shrimp lover.

Grilled Lemon Pesto Shrimp Skewers are the easiest and tastiest of shrimp recipes perfect for grilling season.Sometimes I am at a loss when it comes to the hubby’s palate for food.  I have long given up trying to figure him out.

Grilled Lemon Pesto Shrimp Skewers are the easiest and tastiest of shrimp recipes perfect for grilling season.He actually isn’t that fond of shrimp.  It’s surprised me to hear him tell me that he was planning on eating some shrimp.

But I guess something made him change his mind.  He didn’t touch these luscious shrimp.

Grilled Lemon Pesto Shrimp Skewers are the easiest and tastiest of shrimp recipes perfect for grilling season.Just between you and me, I think it was the green sauce, otherwise known as pesto, that turned him off.  No worries folks.  There was more for me and my girl.

I will spare you the details of what he actually consumed and how he felt the next morning either.  Instead, enjoy these grilled shrimp.  I made them with the lemon basil plant I bough from the Farmer’s Market.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

  13. That pesto looks spot-on! We don’t eat shrimp here but I could totally use that pesto on some tofu skewers or something analogous. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe tonight!
