I am shrimp lover.
But I guess something made him change his mind. He didn’t touch these luscious shrimp.
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.
In the meantime, enjoy all of the grilling recipes we are sharing.
