Reviews for Buttery Grilled Shrimp
"I've made this one a couple of times. It's a simple, no fuss recipe for when you don't know what you're going to cook. Just defrost some frozen shrimp and go."
"So simple and so good!"
"what a simple and pleasant combination of flavors. I was looking for a quick meal, so thawed some frozen medium shrimp, and just sauteed them in the sauce. Delicious."
"Excellent! Although I didn't thread them unto skewers I just wrapped them in foil and poured buttery sauce over them before grilling."
"I have a question - what do you do with the sauce? It says to reserve 1/4 C and that is brushed onto the shrimp while grilling. Where has the rest of the sauce been used? Marinade? If so how long?"
