Garlic lime shrimp is one of my favorite grilled shrimp recipes ever!
The reason is very simple; it calls for only a handful of ingredients but the shrimps are so scrumptious, juicy, succulent and bursting with flavors.
It’s always on my summer menu!
What I love most about this recipe is that it’s very flexible and adaptable.
It’s a dish that you can make all year long, provided that you love shrimp, garlic and lime.
During warm summer days, you can grill the shrimp on an outdoor grill, or skewered them as kabob.
The rest of the year, this can be done on a stovetop using a grill pan or regular skillet.
During cold winter days, you can bake them in the oven.
Regardless of how you make them, they are sure to entice your palate.
They are amazing as a main entree, appetizer, on top of some simple pasta dishes.
Either way, it’s always delicious.
