Cajun Style Grilled Shrimp

Being far from, the ocean seafood is not as common as land animals in my part of the country. Since shrimp is treated pretty well by a freezing process, grilled shrimp is a quick and easy seafood dish. The most time consuming part of the entire dish is peeling the shrimp since grilling the shrimp takes less than 6 minutes. The great thing about cooking on the grill is fewer dishes to cleanup when you are done.
