Thai Grilled Shrimp

Thai Grilled Shrimp
Summer is the perfect time to enjoy grilled food, and Thai Grilled Shrimp is a delicious and easy option that is sure to please! The shrimp are marinated in a flavorful mixture of coconut milk and Thai spices, then grilled until they are cooked through and tender. They are perfect served with rice, noodles, or a salad.
- If you don't have a grill, you can cook the shrimp in a pan on the stovetop.
- You can add other vegetables to the marinade, such as zucchini, bell peppers, or onions.
- Serve the shrimp with your favorite dipping sauce, such as sweet chili sauce or peanut sauce.
