Grilled Shrimp with Lemon Aioli Recipe

Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂

I have had so much fun cooking shrimp this year 🙂 I really think it is perfect for the summer time and it is BEYOND easy to cook…. Except if you overcook it and it becomes like rubber ( I saw it happen on Hell’s Kitchen )

Today’s recipe I knew I wanted to do shrimp with a heavy influence of citrus since citrus pairs perfectly with seafood and it is nice and refreshing when it is SUPER hot outside

I wanted to include an aioli recipe with the shrimp – though it sounds fancy an aioli is just a fancy for “dressed up mayo.” The aioli acts as a dipping sauce for the shrimp

What I love about this recipe it is not SUPER expensive – I use fresh shrimp with costs about 8 dollars but it is enough for the whole family ( myself, Eric, my mom and dad) – I pair this with a nice salad and you are set

Another thing is that this recipe is naturally gluten – free and dairy – free which is AWESOME!

Here is my dad using his grill pan to cook the shrimp – you can grill it on the BBQ if you want. You can even bake the shrimp or cook the shrimp on a skillet – whatever fits your kitchen

The most important this is to make sure the surface is hot and nonstick – each shrimp only needs a couple minutes of cooking on each side. You do not want a rubber shrimp 😉
