I know I have already mentioned fresh, spring recipes, and this one is a PERFECT example of that!
The combination of flavors that this marinade/dressing has is unreal!
Seriously, the best shrimp I have had in a while! And I made it! AND it was easy!!! This will blow everyone’s mind at a BBQ, or just any outdoor get together! So good!
