Reviews for Zippy Shrimp Skewers
"Too spicy, other than that, bland. Will not make this again."
"This is the recipe I seem to go to, over and over again. I use this base marinade for many very different dishes. Use rice, or LoMein noodles and add your own vegetables"
"This was easy and tasted good, but not much "kick". The sweet overpowered the spicy."
