Simple Four Ingredient Grilled Shrimp


This recipe is beyond simple. With only four ingredients: lemon pepper, shrimp, fresh lime juice and olive oil, that’s really all you need besides your favorite cocktail sauce. I used “Naturally Fresh” cocktail sauce  (which I found at Whole Foods). I am teaching a cooking class for college students in two weeks, and this is perfect for them or anyone in a hurry who wants something fresh and delicious.
