Time to fire up the charcoal and drag out the tongs.
Memorial Day weekend is a great time to kick off the summer grilling season.
Here with a delicious recipe to try is Quick Cooking's Karin Calloway.
When the weather warms up, the standard Sunday supper, seated at the table, becomes more casual at my house. We'll often do something simple on the grill and enjoy dinner on the back porch and this week's Grilled Shrimp; with Scampi Butter is a summertime favorite.
I'll begin by marinating the shrimp. Combine some olive oil, the zest and juice of a lemon and a lime and some minced garlic. Add the shrimp and refrigerate for an hour or two.
The shrimp are basted during grilling with some delicious scampi butter which includes melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, hot sauce, garlic and salt and pepper.
The shrimp grill up in just a few minutes per side. Brush with the scampi butter and then turn the shrimp and grill on the other side.
When grilling these outside be sure to keep a squirt bottle of water handy since the butter can cause flare-ups. Serve with some crusty bread and a tossed salad for a casual Sunday supper.
