Lemon Shrimp

This dish is great served warm or chilled. I use this as the ‘surf’ portion for my Skinny Surf and Turf – it is so flavorful and fresh ! Shrimp is so low cal – it makes a perfect dinner.

Lemon Shrimp Kabobs

You know the drill 🙂 Throw away the skewers and forget kabobs – get a grill basket instead and make kabob cooking easy like it should be ! Cooking this with the lemon wedges as well as mixing in lemon juice makes this super citrusy and shrimp is just meant to be mixed with citrus.
