My Sweet Grilled Shrimp Recipe

Even if you do not like shrimp, you must try this recipe. This is an easy and delicious shrimp recipe that anyone can make. I first ate this shrimp while visiting my husbands grandma and she talked me into atleast trying it, at that point I had to have the recipe. At the time, I hated any kind of shrimp breaded or plain that I had tried and so did all of my children but now I love it and eat it all the time. It has also became are family favorite and have often served it to company. Although It states it serves 8, my daughter has ate the whole batch all by herself.

Serves: 8

Preperation Time: 15 minutes

cooking time: 10 minutes


1 bottle of Italian dressing, I use Wish-Bone

1/4 cut of honey

1lbs of raw shrimp, peeled and deveined.

First for the marinate, mix together the Wish-Bone Italian Dressing and 1/4 Cup of Honey in a small bowl, then stir in the raw peeled and deveined shrimp. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight for best results or at least 3 hours.

Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Remove shrimp and discard marinate. Thread the shrimp on skewers. Grill uncovered or broil turning once on each side for approximately five minutes until the shrimp turns pink.

This shrimp side dish is great with many main dishes. I prefer mine with a big tasty steak. Enjoy my favorite grilled shrimp recipe of all time.

Why not make your shrimp recipe on a good gas grill. Amazon has some great gas grills for sale for all your grill recipes at a reasonable price. I personally use the Weber gas grill with the rotisserie and I love it....
