Grilled Shrimp Salad

I love a good salad, and I really love a salad with grilled shrimp on top! This recipe for grilled shrimp would be great with pasta or just on it's own if you used bigger shrimp. I think that lemon instead of lime juice would have been better, as well as fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. Overall, I think that it is pretty hard to mess up the seasoning on shrimp, it is pretty forgiving! And, in my opinion, everything tastes better on the grill!

Grilled Shrimp

1 lb. 36/45 shrimp
3T. melted butter
1/4t. garlic powder
1/4. onion powder
1/4t. dried dill
red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
lime zest and juice

Combine all ingredients in a bowl just before grilling. Place shrimp in a grill basket on a preheated grill. These shrimp take no time at all to cook, maybe 5 minutes. Make sure to move them around in the basket so they don't stick to the pan.

For the salad:

On a bed of Romaine lettuce, I put thin slices of red bell pepper, yellow cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, and Gorgonzola cheese. For the dressing, I used Paul Newman's balsamic vinaigrette.

Bon Appetit!
