These easy shrimp look impressive on a buffet table and taste even better! The zesty sauce has a wonderful spicy citrus flavor. I especially like this recipe because I can prepare it ahead of time. —Mary Jane Guest, Alamosa, Colorado

MY REVIEW

"This was a big hit. Instead of lemon/lime juice, I chopped up 1 tomatillo (1/2'd the entire recipe anyhow bc there were only two of us) and instead added 6 slices of lemon and 6 slices of lime to the marinade. Excellent!"
