I thought I’d try a new sauce for kabobs.  I intended this for grilled salmon, but ended up making shrimp kabobs. A little experiment if you will!  Plus, my first harvest from the garden!

    Your shrimp look like they were already cooked. Did they come out rubbery? I like the idea and the sauce sounds tasty!

    This looks awesome & I will definitely be trying this one! Question… where did you use the parsley? As a garnish on the rice or within the dipping sauce? Thanks so much – I love your blog/website!!
