"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/"

"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)!!!!"

"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."

"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."
