Cajun Lime Grilled Shrimp

This is an awesome marinade to use on chicken wings too! For those who might be worried about the amount of spiciness, simply halve the spices only and taste test once marinade is mixed (before adding meat). You can always add the other half before marinating should you decide ;-)

Another great recipe!
I believe if you trade out the onion powder for sliced red onions and the garlic powder for fresh and just put it in the frig for a little while you might end up with some pretty good Cajun Ceviche.
...and yes Lila, I guess I do have to mess with everything.
