The marinade for this dish makes the shrimp so flavorful, you won't even need a dipping sauce. Even those who claim they don’t like shellfish really dig this appetizer. —Kendra Doss, Colorado Springs, Colorado

"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."

"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."

"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.

"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/"
