Fast Prep Meals: The Best BBQ shrimp you'll ever have

This go to recipe is courtesy of the husband. I liked it to New Orleans style BBQ shrimp with a little zest. It's fast and easy and you can do it on the grill in a cast iron skillet or in your oven on a high temp. Serve with some crusty bread and a salad and dinner is finished in no time. Perfect for the summer days when no one wants to be standing over a hot stove...What are your favorite go to fast recipes?
