Cajun Grilled Shrimp
Serves 12 as an appetizer or 6 people as a main dish

Shrimp will turn pinkish white when done.  They dont take very long to cook at all. Its great to cook them in their shell it keeps them moist. Peel the skin back by holding the tail. There’s a little bit of meat in the tail so carefully slide the shrimp out.

The shrimp are ready to eat as is, over rice, on a salad, in stir fry, or as an appetizer.

Super quick, oh so tasty, and easy for any meal!
