Our Best Ideas for Grilled Shrimp

While shrimp is a favorite in appetizers, it cooks so quickly that it’s perfect for a weeknight dinner. Once you pick the right size and devein them, there are countless ways to cook shrimp, from scampi to tacos, but grilling them is especially fast, easy and flavorful. Plus, a simple marinade makes all the difference. Just take this recipe, for example. This quick marinade is a cheater's version of Vietnamese nuoc mam cham, which is a mixture of Asian fish sauce, lime juice, sugar and chiles. Using crushed red pepper flakes rather than the fresh variety means less chopping, and finely grating the garlic into the marinade ensures it doesn't burn on the grill.
