Grilled Gulf Shrimp
A Part Of The Beach Bites Series
"This is a wonderful recipe that is simple to prepare whether you are out near the beach or up in your condo enjoying the view! Either way when I make this back home in Indiana it reminds me of being at the beach because that is the only other time I ever make it - for that reason!"
