"These are excellent. I suggest heating the marinade ingredients to make it easier to brush on. This sauce might be good on chicken or pork."

"This is a wonderful way to have shrimp. It's just the right ratio of heat to sweetness. I like to have this dish on special nights when it's just my husband and I. It goes great with garlic biscuits. I have been making these shrimp for yrs. and will continue."
