Grilled Shrimp Satay

This dish will be a hit every time.  Watcharee Limanon created this recipe for Grilled Shrimp Satay. She is a master of creating recipes that are delicious and easy to make at home.  Grilled Shrimp Satay is one of the most ordered dishes from Thai restaurants for take-out.  Why not make a fresher version at home with ingredients from your pantry?  All you need to pick up at your local seafood shop or grocery store is 20-30 large fresh shrimp.  Not only is this dish outrageously good, it is far more economical to make at home than to order from your local Thai restaurant.  Enjoy!
