Grilled Honey Mustard Shrimp


You know that scene in Forest Gump where Bubba talks all things shrimp? “Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it.” He was right. Shrimp really is the fruit of the sea and grilling shrimp is one of my favorite ways to have it.

In fact, grilled is just about my favorite way to have anything. Remember when I won Food Network’s Grill of Victory? For good reasoning.

This easy honey mustard marinade is simple, yet packed with flavor. The sweetness from the honey paired with the tang from both the mustard and lime juice provide a complex flavor profile. Pair that with the char flavor from a grill and you’ve got a new recipe staple.

And don’t feel limited to just shrimp! I have tried this marinade on salmon, chicken, and mahi!
