Honey Grilled Shrimp

My husband was given this super-simple recipe by a man who sold shrimp at the fish market. It's now become our family's absolute favorite easy shrimp recipe. We've even served it to company often, with great success. Enjoy! —Lisa Blackwell, Henderson, North Carolina

    This recipe was good. But it didn't wow me with flavor and no one else in my family thought it was ridiculously amazing either. But it's a good, simple recipe that I would probably use again, maybe without the italian dressing.

    I love shrimp and so does my cousin so I am always on the hunt for ways to dress it up. This was perfect. It is super yummy and glazes so well to the shrimp. This is definitely something I will be making all summer.

    We both thought it very good and will make it again soon. Believe we'll add a bit of Cayenne pepper in the marinade. We like our food a bit snappy.

    I have made these four times already and LOVE this recipe! I have also added a small pinch of red pepper flakes to them for a little heat! This is a family favorite!

    So so good! I tried it with chicken and shrimp. The shrimp was delicious and the chicken was just okay.
