“This recipe is similar to a barbecue shrimp dish I love at a restaurant in Florida,” writes Sandy Lutz from North Canton, Ohio. “I serve it as an entree with brown rice and a salad, but it could work as an appetizer, too.”

"I loved this recipe, I really enjoyed that parsley flavor. My favorite shrimp skewer recipe is definitely this Asian style shrimp and squid skewer:"

"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!"

"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."
