Grilled Shrimp – Asian style Grilled Shrimp

It’s time to dig out the grill or the griddle and let the BBQ party begin…

I am back from a week long road trip, we covered Colorado,Utah, Arizona and Nevada. While in Utah, I felt like I have landed on some other planet, it’s full of breathtaking views and stunning canyons. I haven’t yet gotten out of the road trip hangover. Still looking at the pictures and cherishing the wonderful moments.

Here is a picture of me taken in Antelope Canyon, AZ, one of my favorite pictures from the trip.

The week before my road trip most of my cooking was on the griddle placed on the patio. I was obsessed with griddle cooking and so I threw almost everything that came to my hands on the griddle.

Here are the few dishes I cooked on the griddle.
