I love shrimps! I’m almost addicted to them. Who am I kidding? I am addicted to shrimps! It’s one of my favorite things to order when I’m at a fancy restaurant or just anywhere. Shrimps!
As someone who’s trying to watch what she eats. Not necessarily on a diet, but just making sure to eat more plant-based foods that are healthier, I like to experiment with things and this garlic grilled and herb shrimp is one product of those experiments.
This recipe is a fantastic way to prepare shrimp and a great way to use up some of your garden’s fresh herbs.
