Euphemia Haye's Honey Mustard Shrimp

Shrimp for Euphemia Haye Honey Mustard ShrimpOn a hot summer day, nothing sounds better than a light dinner featuring grilled shrimp!  We asked Chef Ray from Euphemia Haye for one of his classic recipes – Honey Mustard Shrimp.  The recipe is fairly simple – perfect for an evening when you just want to fire up the grill, crack open a beer and relax. Make sure to get some fresh Gulf shrimp from Cortez Bait and Seafood or another market that sells local seafood, and you’re good to get grilling!  Chef Ray recommends it as an appetizer, but if you want to use it as a dinner entree, add some more shrimp and serve over rice. Enjoy!
