Buttery Grilled Shrimp

This is easy and delicious! These shrimp are great with steak, but for a special occasion, brush the sauce on lobster tails and grill. —Sheryl Shenberger, Albuquerque, New Mexico

    Very good and so easy to make! I don't have my grill set up, so I just made the sauce in a skillet and cooked the shrimp in the sauce!! Easy peasy!

    I've made this one a couple of times. It's a simple, no fuss recipe for when you don't know what you're going to cook. Just defrost some frozen shrimp and go.

    what a simple and pleasant combination of flavors. I was looking for a quick meal, so thawed some frozen medium shrimp, and just sauteed them in the sauce. Delicious.

    Excellent! Although I didn't thread them unto skewers I just wrapped them in foil and poured buttery sauce over them before grilling.

    I have a question - what do you do with the sauce? It says to reserve 1/4 C and that is brushed onto the shrimp while grilling. Where has the rest of the sauce been used? Marinade? If so how long?
