About this recipe:

Grilled Shrimp Skewers require minimal effort--just a drizzle of Kosterina Greek Herb & Lemon Olive Oil and a few sprinkles of salt, pepper and dried oregano before they go on the grill.  We love to serve them with our Panzanella salad, chock full of garden vegetables and super crunchy Kosterina croutons.
