Grilled Citrus Agave Shrimp- This recipe is for my lovers of shrimp and grilling. This is a great recipe that is easy to make and takes no time to cook. The flavors of orange, lime, lemon with agave gives a refreshing flavor to this dish and the agave adds a kiss of sweetness to the heat of the jalapeno.
