This is one of my favorite warm-weather dishes. It's quick, easy, and very light. I usually serve it on a bed of brown rice and pineapple-corn relish (see separate entry for relish recipe)

Feel free to use smaller shrimp if you like - when I use small shrimp, I'll put them on a piece of foil on my grill instead of threading through skewers.

Just double the amount of shrimp if you plan on using the smaller kind.
