Grilled Lemon-Dill Shrimp

This grilled shrimp is one of my go-to recipes when I stare at the freezer and draw a blank. Add veggies if desired, but grill them separately. —Jane Whittaker, Pensacola, Florida

    Very good, very easy; my kind of recipe. However, I used a scant 1/2 teaspoon of salt, because the 3/4 teaspoon called for in the recipe seemed a bit much. It was still a bit salty to my taste (and I love salt!). Next time I’ll use 1/4 teaspoon. Otherwise delicious!

    Very tasty and complimentary to the shrimp. I broiled our shrimp, because it was below zero outside. I am looking forward to using this recipe this coming summer.
