BBQ Grilled Shrimp

I love seafood and shrimp is right up on the top of my list, so I was super excited to see that they are very low in calories!  This recipe is very simple and goes together fast for a quick meal.

  1. Your posts are filling in the blank spots on my menu plan! My husband and son will LOVE this! Perfect for this weekend! And a Happy~Almost~Weekend to you Friend!! PS ~ Somehow when I tried to link to you on FB to share your post, I've disconnected us and can't reconnect. I can't find a "like" button on your page. Help! :)

  2. Hi Jennifer,

    Just wondering if this recipe is supposed to call for 2 tsps of chili powder rather than 2 Tbs. I made it tonight but found it almost impossible to eat because it was so hot (in fact my husband couldn't eat it and he loves very spicy foods). Maybe we are just wimps?? I will definitely make this again but will adjust the chili powder. FYI: I was able to eat it if I cut a shrimp in half and ate it with my cheesy grits) — very good if a bit caliente!

  3. Hi BTLover2…I think you're right. I think I meant 2 teaspoons…I'll go in and change it.

    Thanks for the heads up and sorry about your dinner!

  4. Wow- saw this recipe on pinterest and cooked it tonight. They are as good as they look- blew us away!! Can’t wait to check out the rest of the site :)
