Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp

A couple of years ago I got this cookbook:

I love it because all of the calorie counts are already done and I don't have to add it all up. Of course if you count points, these are the old points since the book is a few years old.

Tonight we tried Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp... under the broiler since it is February and we have 3" of snow on the ground. It was really good and even John liked it! After the meal he told me that probably 5 years ago he had never had any of the foods in it! Ha!
