Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Truly enjoy the summer with this sweet and spicy Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp with cool and refreshing Avocado Dip.

Besides all the fresh fruit and ice cream, I love summer because I get to grill the whole season long and even into fall. If you’re looking for me around 5pm, I’ll be at the grill until winter cooking up everything from ribs to this Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp.

Holy moly guys! This shrimp is amazingly good. I like shrimp but this is like Whoa! It’s got a hint of sweetness and a bit of spice and the greatest thing is that it’s super easy to make! That’s why I love the grill so much. It makes for an easy meal and easy clean up. Gosh I just love that I don’t have to wash another pot or pan.

To whip up this awesome shrimp, just mix the spices with the lime juice and honey and let it all marinate with the shrimp while you soak your skewers in water so they don’t burn. While you’re waiting, you can prepare the most delicious avocado dip.

This avocado dip is cool and refreshing so it’s the perfect pair to the sweet and spicy shrimp. Not only is it yummy but it’s healthy! All it takes is an avocado, non-fat Greek yogurt, milk, lime, cilantro, and some ranch seasoning. And now I just want to drown everything with this scrumptious avocado dip.

You can serve this Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp as an appetizer, main dish, or in a salad. All I know is I want to eat this all day, everyday and you will too!
