In my world, Super Bowl Sunday isn’t just game day… it’s a religious holiday. What’s better than football, food, friends and family? Nada. We typically host the SB festivities at our place. Here’s my recipe for Char Grilled Chili Shrimp. This marinade and recipe can be used for almost anything. Make it with the shrimp first and you will see how easy it really is.
