These Grilled Shrimp Skewers are delicious, easy to prepare, and cook up in minutes. The marinade with the perfect blend of spices and herbs takes no time at all to mix together and takes these succulent shrimp to the next level. I love to serve them as an appetizer. Or as a main meal with a simple side dish like roasted red potatoes, Asian cucumber salad, lemon rice, or quinoa. Try these tasty shrimp in your shrimp tacos.
