Grilled Lemon Pepper Shrimp Skewers + Healthy Grilling Recipes

Quick to cook and healthy, these shrimp skewers are a grilling favorite. Pair them with grilled veggies or serve over a fresh salad for a crowd-pleasing summertime meal.

Throughout the summer Isaac and I grill out constantly. The grill becomes our oven and we basically use it to cook anything and everything. We’ve even grilled avocado before. I know it sounds strange, but they actually come off the grill warm, creamy and absolutely delicious. Don’t knock it until you try it!

In the spirit of summertime grilling I’m teaming up with some of my best blogging buddies (yet again) to bring you six crazy delicious recipes to make on the grill this summer. From grilled greens to impressive meat dishes and drool-worthy desserts, we’ve got all your bases covered!
