Grilled Garlic Shrimp Skewers

– Grilled Garlic Shrimp Skewers –

Shrimp have always been one of my favorite shellfish, they have such an incredible texture and can really bring a huge flavor to any dish. Most people use shrimp to add more appeal to a dish, such as a seafood paella, a stir fry or even a salad, just to make the dish pop and have more flavor. All this sounds great, and it is great, but shrimp is a shellfish that can also stand on its own. Take this recipe of grilled Garlic Shrimp Skewers, we are using the all mighty shrimp and making it the star of the show, while combining it with garlic, and as we all know, shrimps best friend is garlic. This recipe is very easy to make, and uses simple ingredients, so remember to buy the highest quality fresh shrimp you can find. Watch the video below on how to make these Garlic Shrimp Skewers, and be ready to create a simple yet extraordinary dish. Salud!
