Balsamic Grilled Shrimp

Not much to say here, but I will take a plate full of these any night. Shrimp have a bad rap at times due to the “farming” of shrimp and the fact that they are high in cholesterol. Sometimes overlooked is that they are full of protein, vitamins and even nutrients that are proven to help food cravings. Recent studies even indicate that although they are high in cholesterol, shrimp cholesterol may not be that bad for you. In fact they are high in “good fats,” or omega fatty acids. Plus, they pack a protein punch!


1 lb of shrimp deveined and tail off
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon garlic pepper seasoning (I love Weber brand)


Marinade Shrimp for at least 1 hour.

Skewer or use a grill basket, grill on medium-high heat for 4 minutes per side. DO NOT OVER COOK! You can also saute if you are not willing to head outside in the cold.
