Oven Grilled Shrimp

Kathy Sterling


I love shrimp, it is probably my favorite food. Even though fried is my favorite, grilled is a close 2nd. I decided to try baking it in a marinade to see if it was as good as grilled and was pleased with the results. It was very quick, easy and delicious. I hope you try this way when you are hungry for delicious seafood.
