November 12, 2009


My kids love shrimp, especially my oldest son, Alec. I can’t go wrong making shrimp at my house, and when it’s on a skewer, it’s even that much better. This recipe is so easy with the combination of lemon juice, Cajun seasoning, garlic and fresh parsley. It’s so flavorful perfect for football parties, Thanksgiving or Christmas appetizers or any weeknight main dish.
