Bring a touch of class to any outdoor event with this Simple Grilled Rosemary Shrimp dish.
It’s nearly the end of grilling season and you have one more event to attend but don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Think shrimp. This simple dish can stay marinated in the fridge for up to 24 hours, which will leave you with plenty of free time for mingling.
Get out there and enjoy summer’s last blast. Spend less time in the kitchen, and soak up the last few rays of the summer. Forget the skewers, these shrimp are beautiful without them and who wants to spend time skewering anyway.
Save all of the fuss in the kitchen for the upcoming Winter season. Make this last three-day weekend a breeze.
When I was buying my shrimp at the local market, Barliss, the bagger was telling me how much he loves shrimp and how much fun it is to dine at Benihana because it’s like going to a show. He was like all into it and everything, that I almost felt like asking him to join us for a no labor Labor Day celebration. Well maybe some other time huh!
Anyway, today the Sunday Supper Tastemakers are sharing easy “no-labor” Labor Day recipes with all of you.
- 1/2 pound medium shrimp, thawed and deveined (about 16 shrimp)
