Grilled Butterflied Shrimp (Paleo, AIP)

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 24, 2012 at 1:44pm

These grilled butterflied shrimp are more of a technique than a recipe, a simple way to grill truly shrimpy shrimp.

Man oh man oh man do I miss matzoh ball soup! It used to be a bit of a joke in my household because my husband is Jewish, and doesn’t like matzoh balls, and I am not, and could eat 10 of them in one sitting. Not kidding. While I couldn’t dig into these myself…
