Asian Marinated Shrimp Skewers

 

Summertime.  What the heck are we gonna eat when it’s so dang hot?  The answer is: grilled shrimp.  I recommend you get thee to the fishmonger and purchase two pounds of peeled and deveined shrimp, soak them in this delicious asian style marinade, and then throw them on a hot grill, stat.  You could go through the motions of making some veggies on the side, but you might wanna eat these shrimp until you bust a gut.

  • Fishmonger?
    This is Louisiana, where the shrimp virtually swim up the bayou to get to our kitchens!
    That’s why they called swimp.
