As soon as I saw these on A Taste of Home Cooking, I knew I needed to make them soon! They were absolutely delicious, and a snap to make. I can see this recipe becoming a summer time regular around here. I grilled the shrimp as recommended and they were so tasty! I couldn’t belive how flavorful the marinade made the shrimp in just 30 minutes. I can’t wait to make these again soon! This recipe fed 3 adults, when I make it again I would probably double it.
