Our ‘thing’ this summer is – as you might have guessed – having barbecues by the sea. When I wrote about how to beat the Sunday Blues, one of the recommendations was to stay out late on Sunday. Who sleeps early anymore anyway, right? On one of our BBQs, we made these amazing shrimp tortillas that all of our guests loved. This recipe was cooked straight out of the grill by the sea on a nice summer day. It’s easy and delicious! I strongly recommend it to add an extra touch to a simple BBQ.
