Spicy Pesto Grilled Shrimp

Summer is here and I love to grill and BBQ. I saved this spicy pesto grilled shrimp recipe for summer and have been anxiously waiting for this day. Original recipe doesn’t have spices, but I added to give some spicy touch with the addition of green chilies and red chili. Do add these light fresh pesto marinated shrimps into your BBQ party and you will love it.
