Grilling is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. It just makes life complete. The wonderful aroma wafting through the air is sure to make anyone hungry. Seasoned, grilled shrimp is quite possibly one of the best foods around.
My little brother graduated this past weekend and for his celebration dinner my mom made these Cajun shrimp skewers. They disappeared within minutes of coming off the grill. Saying they were delicious is quite an understatement.
I might add that they went perfectly with margaritas! Cheers to celebrations and summer!

1 lb asparagus, cleaned and cut in thirds
