"A few modifications. I pulled most of the rosemary off the stems and just left the ends. That gave a hint on rosemary and the shrimp is not damaged. For the sauce, I put the marmalade in the microwave for 40 seconds which gave it a spreading consistency. If I made this again, I would cover the grill with the new foil meant for grilling and not sticking. The flavor was wonderful and that is why I'm giving it 4 stars. With the modifications, 5 stars."

"This made a huge mess on my grill. The sauce was too thick but had good flavor. I would not make this again but would however make the sauce for something else."

"The flavor of the shrimp was excellent but the rosemary skewers were a little too much. I would definitely use the marinade again, but probably on a regular skewer."

"I thought this recipe was good. A little extra sweet, which was fine with me. Maybe next time I'll add a dash of soy just to even out the taste a little bit. I will be making this again."
