I'd like to thank my friends at Mirum for sponsoring this post about a delish homemade BBQ shrimp marinade recipe. As always, all opinions are my own.
Easy dinners start at home! These easy BBQ Shrimp Skewers are delightfully grilled to perfection and will be a hit with your family.
The Hubs and I have officially broken in the grill for the season! In past years we've kept the grill going through winter, but with the twins being born in November we hadn't used it in MONTHS. It was looking sad and dusty.
Since the boys are getting a little easier (Just a little!) to manage, I'm finally feeling like we have more time to make and actually enjoy our meals which means I've been putting extra thought into what I've been making on a day to day basis. Some of the meals we are grilling like this one and some are made in the kitchen. Either way, I can't get enough of EASY recipes like these juicy shrimp kabobs with the easiest BBQ Shrimp Marinade recipe. In fact, I firmly believe that with a little planning anyone can make and eat beautiful and delicious meals most days of the week.
I thought I'd share this delish recipe with you today and a simple way you can simplify your meals at home!
