Grilled Lime Shrimp with Zesty Dipping Sauce

grilled shrimp

Remember that yummy roasted cauliflower post?  I figured you did, well the zesty dipping sauce worked double time for that meal also making a tasty accompaniment to grilled lime shrimp.  Now that we have our outdoor kitchen, grilling has never been so much fun.  Grilling shrimp is so quick and easy that even Baker doesn’t have a chance to get away before they’re done.  Well, that’s not true, because he’s lightning fast, but grilling shrimp is pretty darn quick and makes it super easy to make on a busy night or fast weekend meal.
