"I love shrimp and so does my cousin so I am always on the hunt for ways to dress it up. This was perfect. It is super yummy and glazes so well to the shrimp. This is definitely something I will be making all summer."

"We both thought it very good and will make it again soon. Believe we'll add a bit of Cayenne pepper in the marinade. We like our food a bit snappy."
