Grilled Garlic Rosemary Shrimp

On the Central Coast of California, grilling season doesn’t really exist. It’s always a good time of year to grill!

This shrimp is really tasty and stands alone as a main dish, makes a great filling for tacos, or would be a really nice appetizer. Shrimp only take a few minutes to cook, so I recommend having everything else ready to go so they can go right to the table. I use a grill basket to grill shrimp, but if you don’t have one, use wooden skewers or rosemary stems.

Have a great week!
