Just the way we love our shrimp. Tangy with an edge of sweetness. I made the recipe exactly as written. This tested keeper will be served often. Another test kitchen, crowd tasted winner . Volunteer Field Editor

Looks amazing. Does anyone know where to get the dish it is served in the photo from?

One of the easiest and most appreciated appetizers I've made in a long time. Love the sweet (brown sugar) and zingy (fresh garlic/spices) combo. Great option for an impressive and quick dinner party app!

Slowest amount of time I've spent wasting 2 lbs of shrimp. Tastes like I cooked shrimp in spaghetti sauce. Italian seasoning plus basil was overkill for sure.

Sounds wonderful. I am going to try them on the grill.

Making these for the 4th time tonight! We, as well as our neighbors, love them. The two pounds always disappear in a hurry. I always double the recipe and add just a touch of Creole spice for an extra kick. So delicious and easy to prepare.

I made these for an appetizer night and we love them. They were SO easy! Next time I will use fresh basil, as that's just a personal preference. This recipe is worth doubling.

I made these for myself and being hungry i only marinated for half hour. The Italian seasoning and lemon were perfect with a slight hint of sweet. Yum, will definitely treat myself again
