This will be my go to shrimp marinade from this point forward.... This a really great basic recipe. I made this last week and I am going to make it again tonight. The only thing I am changing is cutting back on the salt. I find most things to be too salty for my liking and this proved to be the case in this recipe as well.. for me at least. Really great basic recipe though. Pros: simple and quick Cons: too much salt Read More

Fabulous Fresh Flavors I will make this dish again and again. Even when the temperature outside is 2 degrees this dish was perfect as a chilled entree. I prepared the shrimp as directed and let the dish marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator served it with toasty bread and the result was fantastic! If I shut my eyes I could see a beach way off in the distance!! Just wishing I guess! Pros: Light but filling! Read More
