MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 7, 2013

Wee liked it because it wasn't too spicy. I might try it with cocktail sauce.

With a little bit of cayenne or some red chili peppers, this recipe would have 5 stars. Very good!

My husband now requests this regularly. He loves it paired with a grilled steak and it is so easy I don't have to save it for a special occasion.

Sounds good but have not made it as yet. My husband wants to give it a try.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 26, 2010

Simple and easy. I added a few sprinkles of crushed red chile peppers, so the shrimp were very "tangy." I liked the extra "heat," but it would probably be suffiently spicy without the crushed peppers. I also skipped the skewers and just use a grilling basket. This recipe is certainly worth the try.
