Reviews for Party Shrimp
"Making these for the 4th time tonight! We, as well as our neighbors, love them. The two pounds always disappear in a hurry. I always double the recipe and add just a touch of Creole spice for an extra kick. So delicious and easy to prepare."
"Delicious! Very easy and tasty! I wouldn't change a thing."
"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!"
"Pretty good. Very easy and quick."
"Easy and yummy addition to my appetizer party. I got no complaints and the shrimp disappeared. No sauce needed for these tasty bites. Thank you for sharing Kendra.*I would use uncooked shrimp for the best results."
"These were absolutely fabulous! Will definately make again!"
"Do you have to use uncooked shrimp?"
"I made this tonight and it was delicious. I didn't have fresh garlic so I used minced. I'll definitely make this often."
"Marinated 10 shrimps so halved the ingredients...used a tsp of butter n olive oil and sauteed 2 minced garlic in it till fragrant n added to other spices as in the recipe...broiled them on wet skewers...made it easier to turn to other side...used level 3/4 tsp of brown sugar ...didn't find these sweet atall thanks to other reviews....we're Delish. ..I'm not a fan of seafood but didn't find these smelly ...rather light, tasty n mild....might add more lemon juice for added flavor next time....easy to prepare...my picky husband ate most of them...(who is a big fan of seafood....needless to say Shrimps)!!!!"
"Whole family loved it! Will make again"
"Was excited to see a new way to prepare shrimp a favorite of many. Since expensive only tried with 1/2 lb of the 2 lbs purchased. Sorry to say just awful! Everyone wanted the plain roasted ones. To save these had to rinse off the spices... didn't want to waste."
"It was ok."
"I had no lemon juice so I used 1/2 tsp of lemon pepper in place of the pepper. DELISH! I sauteed the shrimp and served them over brown rice. This shrimp would be awesome no matter what! I will definitely make this again!!"
"I wrapped each shrimp in bacon before broiling; the bacon and spices combo made this shrimp absolutely fabulous."
"Thank you for adding me to you Taste & Home,I'm Very please with all your recipe's they are so delicious and very healthy, Love you guys.Luz Mercado"
"Fast and great tasting ..."
"Everyone said (WOW/Good) I served this at a Xmas dinner buttet. It was a big hit."
"My recipe showed NO ingredients! Easy to make, but not so delicious."
"I doubled this recipe for our large family. I loved the ease and the taste of this recipe. I will definitely make again."
"We enjoyed this very much. Next time I will add a pinch of cayenne for a bit of a kick."
"I doubled the marinade mixture, and I used crushed red pepper flakes instead of pepper and I found them a little sweet so next time I will use 2 tbsp. of brown sugar instead of the 3 when I doubled the marinade mixture. I also used 1-1/2 tsp. of fresh minced garlic instead of 2 cloves, thinly sliced. I used 30 large shrimp. They were cooked, so I cut the cooking time in half and took the shell off the tails and put them on soaked skewers."
