Reviews for Tomato-Basil Shrimp Skewers
"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."
"Will definitely make this again!"
"I don't eat meat or seafood, but am hosting a party and looking to make these. BUUUUUUT.. I have no idea what kind of shrimp to buy?? Fresh or Frozen... please help!"
"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!"
"The best grilled shrimp, but I would add salt too."
"Very delish. I have nothing more to say about it, it was great and would definitely make it again."
"Very easy and delicious recipe. I too did not have tomato sauce, used BBQ sauce instead. Would make it again with the BBQ sauce!!!"
"5 star restaurant taste! Easy to make."
"Made these for two parties - everyone raved. I didn't have tomato paste but I had pizza sauce which I think gave it a little more zing. Great recipe!"
