This is as simple as it gets. I made this for our Virtual Cooking Light Supper Club. http://whistlestopcooking.blogspot.com/2011/12/cooking-light-holiday-party.html A little skewer and it's an appetizer, a loaded skewer over rice and you have a meal.
Broiled Herb-Marinated Shrimp Skewers
These skewers are a simple, quick, and fresh-tasting entrée. Shrimp cook fast, making them great for the broiler—but watch the time and keep an eye on them so they don't overcook and dry out.
