Spicy Island Shrimp Recipe

Spicy Island Shrimp Recipe

My husband got this recipe while he was living on St. Croix Island. We've served the zippy shrimp dish on several holiday occasions. I'm amazed at how even those who claim not to care for shrimp come out of their shells and devour them when they're prepared this way! -Teresa Methe, Minden, Nebraska
