I made this for a get together with neighbors and it was a real hit! I'm using extra dipping sauce on fish tacos this week.
This is really tasty. My whole family loved it. I added some lime juice to the marinade. Served over a bed of orzo.
The sauce really made this recipe. Fabulous! Marinade was ok but probably any marinade/seasoning would work for the shrimp. Definitely an abundance of sauce. Next time will half sauce or double the shrimp.
This is fabulous. Loved it!
I made this dish for Easter brunch. My family loved it. No changes.
