Each night throughout the week I like to make a dish that is a 'favorite' for at least one of the kids. My little man has developed quite a liking for seafood and I already had shrimp on hand so I made him Grilled Pesto Shrimp.
I whipped up a jar of homemade pesto during the day (I used Jennie's pesto recipe, with my homegrown basil) and refrigerated it until I was ready to use it.
I carefully placed all of the shrimp onto wood skewers and then brushed one side with the homemade pesto, placing that side down on my small indoor grill. I then brushed the other side with pesto before turning them. They only needed to be grilled for a few minutes on each side.
We have quite a bit of homemade pesto left which will be perfect to use later in the week in a different dish.
