Baja Citrus Grilled Shrimp

As I've often said, I am not a huge fan of shrimp.

But a neighbor gave me a couple of grilled shrimp she'd made and I LOVED them!

Marinated in a packet of McCormick's Grill Mates "Baja Citrus", with a little oil, a little orange juice, and a little honey. DEEEEEE licious!

I served them over whole grain linguini with browned butter and sage sauce. God, so good! :blob_blue:

Also served a juicy fresh tomato salad with French bread to sop stuff up.

You're right on with this recommendation. I cooked some of these last night and absolutely loved them. I had four left for lunch, only four :(. When I first read the back of the pkt, I thought I bought the wrong marinade. The oj/honey directions are on there, just have to look below the regular directions. I already have 3 more pkts on my grocery list. This will be a regular for me. Thanks!

I got all the ingredients.
I'll be using green onions in mine because I love them and think they'll add to it.

Sass, it never occurred to me to use cooked shrimp. Glad it worked out for you!

What did you do for a pasta sauce?

Yes, cooked worked just fine!
I thawed them, then pan "grilled" them in Irish butter and a few drops of olive oil.

Pasta sauce? Didn't.
I tossed the linguini in butter while still hot.
While eating I mixed the shrimp in with the pasta, it picked up the wonderful flavours from the marinade.

Heyyyyyy, thanks for bumping this up, Cooksie!

I was trying to think of something to grill that I haven't had in awhile, and this fits the bill!

I cooked wings marinated in the Baja marinade in the air fryer. The first batch was way too dark, probably because of the citrus/honey. The second batch was great. I'm still learning with my air fryer.

I love the marinade with shrimp, but it is also mighty tasty on chicken too.

Inspired by Cooksie.

This time I had Colossal sized shrimp. Grilled and served with a 3-bean pasta salad and Take and Bake ciabatta.
