Cajun Grilled Shrimp Skewers

Wow. I still cannot believe that summer has practically got it's foot out the door and fall is literally just around the corner! The weather here was very mild there for a bit, but the past few days have proven that summer is definitely not gone just yet, not that we ever really put our grills away down here anyway.

Now, for the grill, unless you're gonna do a quick stir on one of these kinds of trays, I usually pick the larger sized shrimp. There's nothing wrong with these trays ... I have one myself. But small shrimp cook super fast on the grill and frankly just aren't worth the work it takes to skewer them as far as I'm concerned, so this pan is great if you want to throw smaller shrimp on the grill.  Or if you want to sort of stir-fry some grilled veggies. So, for this recipe, go ahead and get the jumbo babies.

Don't be scared if you pull out your shrimp from the marinade to find that they look a bit pink and sort of cooked around the edges. That the acid in the lemon working and it's perfectly fine! Just skewer them up and get 'em on the grill. This is my favorite marinade for grilling shrimp.

Just whatever you do - don't overcook the shrimp! Serve them up with your favorite salsa. Hope you enjoy the recipe.
