Key West Shrimp

These shrimp were out of this world yummy.
Mr. Picky pants and Taylor ate almost all of them in 5 minutes flat.
I got 4 shrimp.
I literally had to put them in a container and hide them behind the vegetables in the back of the refrigerator.
I saved them for my lunch the next day.
I am in love.
 I marinated the shrimp for about an hour before grilling them.
I doubled the marinate. 
I like to make sure everything is well coated while it marinates.
The shrimp were so good, we made it with chicken the next week.
Also super yummy.
I highly recommend putting this on your menu this week!
 Key West Shrimp

* 3 tablespoons soy sauce
* 2 tablespoons honey
* 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

* Juice of 1 lime
* 1 teaspoon minced garlic (I used 2 cloves)
* small bunch of cilantro, chopped
* 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast or 1 bag raw shrimp (I used medium sized shrimp)

Place chicken breast/shrimp into the mixture, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes. For chicken, grill on medium high heat for 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear.For shrimp grill on skewers for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes each side. ENJOY!
