You might be sick of hearing me complain about being behind in everything, but I just can’t seem to catch up! For example, this wonderful shrimp recipe was for the May Barefoot Bloggers post and I am posting it, well, end of June, almost July! Yikes! So, so sorry. The end of the school year brought along it’s own bit of chaos and I was willing to let it slide and forget my participation in my blogging groups for one month. Unfortunately, I really REALLY wanted to make this recipe for Ina Garten’s Grilled Herb Shrimp because, frankly, we love shrimp!

So, posting a month late, but still very enthusiastically, I present to you May’s Barefoot Bloggers’ post for Grilled Herb Shrimp, chosen by Penny from Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen. This recipe is ideal for several reasons.

One, it’s SUPER EASY.

Two, you get to use the grill! Yes!

Three, it’s healthy! Love it!

And four, it really does taste great.

If you are serving it as an appetizer for your July 4th picnic, your guests will not be able to have just one or two, so beware. I suppose the may con about this recipe is that shrimp is expensive. And with the oil disaster in the Gulf and with our fisherman struggling to make a living, the prices will only get higher. But, if you have some shrimp hiding in the freezer, I say go for it! This recipe will not disappoint you!
