Reviews for Grilled Shrimp Skewers
"I loved this recipe, I really enjoyed that parsley flavor. My favorite shrimp skewer recipe is definitely this Asian style shrimp and squid skewer: http://www.homedouxhogar.com/world-cuisine/2014/7/19/asian-style-shrimp-and-squid-skewers"
"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."
"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."
