These were tasty. My husband really liked them. I do have a suggestion if anyone would like to try it and that's add half oil and half butter and about 1/4 cup parm cheese. Place marinade in blender then marinate. The butter mixture will cling to the shrimp and give it more flavor while its cooking. Read More

A definite favorite!! The marinade is so easy to prepare and can be done ahead of time. Instead of making kabobs, we used a grilling basket and cooked shrimp on the grill til it turned pink. Served over linguini with the following sauce: Saute together 1 stick butter, juice of 1 lemon, 1 T minced garlic, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1 T (or more to taste) red pepper flakes and a spash of white wine. Simply delicious!!!!! Read More

My family absolutley goes crazy when I make this recipe. I follow the recipe exactly and it turns out incredible. I serve the shrimp with pasta that I toss with olive oil, garlic, salt, parmesan, italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. It is delicious :) Read More

Great recipe!! Just tried a few changes - instead of marinating seperately first skewer - try adding mushrooms and scallops - add to a large ziploc freezer bag (just remember to cut the sharp tips off the skewers). Then add marinade to ziploc bag. Try rolling in a mixture of italian bread crumbs and parmasan cheese(50/50 mix) then grill on a George Forman grill.Then drizzle with garlic butter(it just melted in your mouth). The mushrooms are awesome and makes the kabobs look bigger. Makes the shrimp and scallops go further. If the mushrooms are large, cut in half. Read More

Since there was only the two of us, hubby just stuck these under the broiler. Delicately seasoned, light, fresh and flavorful. So refreshing to find a shrimp dish not heavily sauced or seasoned. Perfect. Read More

My husband couldn't get enough of this dish! I made a double batch of the marinade and set aside half to coat the pasta; I then marinated pre-cooked shrimp using my FoodSaver for about 45 minutes. I grilled the shrimp on the Foreman grill (lined with foil for easy clean-up) and tossed the shrimp and marinade together with whole-wheat linguine. The family loved it (although the kids didn't care for the red pepper flakes) and husband commented that it was the best shrimp & pasta he'd ever had. Read More

I really can't rave enough about how good this was. Easy too! I only had frozen precooked jumbo shrimp. I defrosted it marinated it and then grilled it for just a couple of minutes on each side. This was so good that even my husband (the cocktail sauce guy) ate it without sauce. I highly recommend this one if you're looking for something simple different and tasty to grill. Read More

Divine! Only my most favorite recipes get 5 stars! This was so good. I made two batches of the marinade one batch for the shrimp and another batch to marinate boneless skinless chicken breasts. In the batch of marinade for the shrimp I used 4 tablespoons of butter. I only had dry parsely flakes. The red pepper flakes give it just the right "snap". I also pan fried both. It was great on both the chicken and shrimp. I served my surf and turf with fresh sweet corn. Read More

Thank you for this perfect light summer fare. I served with pasta that was lightly tossed with some of the marinade I kept separate- just added a little fresh lemon and some grated parmesan when plated- Yum Yum. Read More
