"This was delicious! I added some sea salt, used pizza sauce because that's what I had, and added a little extra cayenne. Will definitely make again"

"The shrimp were wonderful! I wouldn't change a thing, although I did take one reviewer's suggestion and use chili sauce instead of tomato sauce because we like spicy food."

"I thought this was pretty good, but not great. I found the taste to be very subtle. Next time I will try subbing in Old Bay for the cayenne. I think that would make this more of a 5 star recipe.

jruvo87: This might be a little late, but you can use either fresh or frozen. If you do get frozen, make sure you thaw them first before starting the recipe."

"Probably the best grilled shrimp I've had including high end restaurants. I had to substitute chili sauce for the tomato sauce and old bay for the cayenne. Wow!"
