Shrimp marinated in a cilantro marinade and grilled till browned…

This Summer, I didn’t do much grilling and the thought that Summer is going to end soon tempted me to grill more. Everything tastes better when grilled. So, the other day I threw some shrimp on the grill. I made a simple cilantro marinade and marinated the shrimp for a few hours, inserted them into a skewer and grilled till they turned brown. Nothing complicated, a very simple recipe and the grilled shrimp tasted great.

  5. Spray non-stick cooking oil on the grill.

  7. Grill on medium high heat till the shrimp turns golden brown in colour, rotate the skewer half way through.
  8. Half way through, spray non-stick cooking oil over the shrimp and grill for a couple more minutes, this will give a nice fried taste to the shrimp.
