Chef John's Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp

Rating: 4.83 stars
This grilled garlic and herb shrimp recipe is very easy, IF you can just walk out into the backyard, and pick a handful of your own fresh, green sprigs. However, these are so amazingly delicious, if you don't have a garden, then do splurge and buy a bunch of all the herbs. And get the extra large shrimp so they can grill longer and get maximum caramelization.

Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers

Rating: 4.52 stars
These savory-sweet shrimp skewers are easy to make and cook in just a few minutes. They are perfect for summer weeknights or weekend dinner parties. Prep the sauce ahead of time for an even faster dinner. I prefer to use jumbo shrimp (21-25 per pound), however use what you have on hand.

Tex-Mex Grilled Shrimp and Salsa

Tex-Mex seasoned shrimp with homemade smoky grilled salsa for dipping. I serve this as a main dish but it would make a great appetizer as well.
