Reviews for Party Shrimp
"I made these for an appetizer night and we love them. They were SO easy! Next time I will use fresh basil, as that's just a personal preference. This recipe is worth doubling."
"Very good and easy"
"I made these for myself and being hungry i only marinated for half hour. The Italian seasoning and lemon were perfect with a slight hint of sweet. Yum, will definitely treat myself again"
"I made this yesterday for Christmas and literally within 20 min all 2 pounds of shrimp were gone!! My husband wants it again this week so I'm going to try the other suggestions and put over pasta and add some roasted veggies. BTW I used cooked shrimp and marinated overnight. I took out of fridge an hour before I quick pan fried in sauce to warm. Not rubbery at all and since they were cooked I served toasted bread to dip into the sauce."
"This is delicious and easy. I will definitely make again. And probably double it!"
"Had to adjust amts. to prepare 1- 1/2 lbs shrimp. Maybe I goofed. Marinated for little over an hour, all I could taste was the Italian seasoning. I want to taste shrimp. May try again, cutting waaay back on the seasoning."
"Its sure is a party. It is perfect blend of sweet and tangy with just the right amount of spices that you will certainly enjoy. You my want to double the recipe as I made the full amount of marinade for just the 2 of us. I cannot wait to serve this recipe to my family. I am so happy to have found a new Marinated Shrimp Recipe. Its a keeper.JanieTaste of Home Volunteer Field Editor."
"Like others, this shrimp needs no sauce. Both me and my husband loved it. Will be making again."
"I only marinaded these for 20 minutes and they still turned out great! I can't imagine how good it would be with the full 2 hours! The caption at the top says it all - you don't need any sauce!I served these with rice and had it as a main meal instead of an appetizer - it would be good both ways. Here is my blog post on it: http://heatskitchen.com/2016/01/25/party-shrimp/"
"My grandkids loved this and was easy to prepare!"
