Marinated Grilled Shrimp

I am going to start putting up some recipes that I have found and adapted or recipes that were shared on the Medifast forums even if I haven't made them yet. I just want to give everyone an opportunity to make them even if I haven't. There is no need for you to wait for me. I hope you don't mind that some recipes will not have photos. I feel it is important to share the knowledge, so a sharing I will do :) If you happen to take a photo of a dish that I don't have a photo for, please email it to me by facebook or my regular email and I will put it up! Thanks so much!
