Grilled Pesto Ranch Shrimp

A container of store-bought pesto in the fridge is the quickest way to complete a meal, and this sweet grilled shrimp is no exception. Simply shake on some ranch seasoning for the first flavor layer, and finish with the bright pesto sauce. This Grilled Pesto Ranch Shrimp recipe works as a passed app on skewers or pulled off and served over rice, pasta or salad for a complete meal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious Way to Grill Shrimp I love to grill all year round and this recipe was delicious. I added a bit of black pepper and cayenne for a kick and at the end before serving I gave the shrimp a squeeze of lime. Delicious!!
