My first attempt of making Grilled Sesame Shrimp was a huge success! The sesame oil and sesame seeds on the grill added a rich flavor to the sweet shrimp. It was also my first time grilling on my new BBQ grill. I finally caved and bought one for the Summer and I couldn’t be happier. So get ready for a lot of new grilling recipes. What better way to christen my new BBQ grill than with making Grilled Sesame Shrimp. Make sure you skewer your shrimp so it makes it easier to flip and doesn’t fall threw the grill. My seven year old twin girls really enjoyed the Grilled Sesame Shrimp too, but I think it was also fun for them because they were on skewers or what they call sticks. Sometimes it’s just fun to eat with your hands. I served this with a side of rice and leftovers from my Asian Cold Noodle Salad. You can even make Grilled Sesame Shrimp and toss it in a Asian Salad. I think it would make a great appetizer for your next BBQ.
