Today's Round Up: Grilled Goodness

We love seafood in this house! We got some great shrimp on sale the other day at the market so we threw together some easy ingredients, marinated the shrimp and grilled them up. This is a quick, easy and delicious recipe, perfect for grilling season--which where we live, is all year round. Just typing about it makes me hungry. So, branch out a bit, get yourself some shrimp and get your grill on!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Serves 2

* 1 pound large, raw shrimp (I prefer to prepare this dish with the tails off/peeled and deveined)
* 4 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 Cup olive oil
* 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
* 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
* 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
* 1 teaspoon hot sauce, or a few pinches red pepper flakes

Directions

Prepare shrimp if not yet peeled and deveined. In large Ziploc bag or large bowl, whisk all ingredients (except for shrimp) together. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Place in refrigerator for 2-3 hours to marinate (cover if using bowl) stirring occasionally. Remove shrimp from bag or bowl and put on skewers. Grill over medium-high coals/heat for 3 minutes each side or until shrimp are cooked through. Do not cook too long or shrimp will become chewy.
