Key West Lime Shrimp

by Dana Snook on June 10, 2014


I made dinner in a split second yesterday. Well, maybe not that fast, but it was a quick and easy dinner. Adding the Shrimp to the grill gives it a nice summer touch to the recipe. You’ll notice that I use raw honey because it’s in its most pure form, but regular honey can work for this recipe as well.  I served over Brown Basmati Rice and a side of steamed green beans, but this shrimp would be delicious on a dinner salad too! Enjoy!
