Grilling shrimp on the barbie is an easy way to make a meal, or to add an accompaniment to your favorite steak dish. This recipe takes very little time to make, and can be customized to your liking. Add a touch of cayenne pepper to the seasoning if you like spicier food, or add your favorite dried herbs to the seasoning for a touch of Mediterranean flavor. We recommend using a little larger size shrimp for this grill recipe, but you can also use smaller shrimp, just cut the cooking time down a bit to account for their smaller size. Enjoy!
