Grilled Shrimp With Citrus Sauce Recipe

I recently found this Grilled Shrimp With Citrus Sauce recipe in some papers from a holiday to Florida. I have been scratching my head trying to remember where I acquired it. It is all in my handwriting so I am sure it is not from the Internet. I am thinking it must have come from a friend. We were unable to grill where we were staying so I know we didn’t make it while in Florida. Having unearthed it I will definitely feed it into our menu planning.
