Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Making homemade marinades is always fun. And it’s usually results in a much tastier marinade than those store-bought marinades. One of my favorite fruits to use in marinades is lime. Chipotle Lime, Cilantro Lime, Mint Lime. You can get pretty creative with limes when making marinades. Citrus usually mixes well with seafood. Over the past weekend, we decided to do some grilling. Shrimp was one of the items on the menu. I made a tasty marinade, with limes, for the shrimp.

  15. Love baking with little foil packets and especially with salmon. Copper River Salmon goes pretty quick as it’s season is gone before you can blink, but Costco usually carries it. This looks sensational. Thanks!
