I made this last night and did not care for it. My husband said that it was good, but he didn't rave like he usually does if he really likes something. I think that salt and at least a little fat needed to be added--like olive oil. We love grilled shrimp, but not this recipe so much.
Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Kebabs
A quick 20-minute marinade adds bold flavor to the shrimp before they cook on the grill. Serve with a favorite beer or a tall glass of iced tea.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 kebab)
