"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."

"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?"

"After reading all the reviews, I was really disappointed when I made these. They were average at best and not something anyone thought was good enough to make again. I'll keep looking for a good grilled shrimp recipe."

"Oh boy! My men absolutely loved this dish. My 18year old son inhaled these! We all loved them. Using the leftover sauce to dip the shrimp in reminded us of the sauce used at the Japanese Steak House. Super Yummy! I used mega-shrimp (13 to a pound) and grilled a bit longer, of course. Very good and will certainly make again and again. Thanks!"

"I just loved the buttery mixture. It was not so overpowering as to take away the wonderful flavor of some good shrimp. ( You would think with 2 tsp chili powder) Lots of compliments at my BBQ. Soooo eaaasssy!!!"
