Hubby thought the sauce was a bit on the tart side so I did add a bit more sugar and added some lime zest as well. The sauce also would be delicious on grilled fish. Can't say enough about the shrimp boil we REALLY liked this blend of ingredients! SAVVYHOSTESS thumbs up in this house! Read More

Good sauce with just a little more sugar. I added a little of Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Juice concentrate. The kind of juice you use when making Key Lime Pie. Read More

Probably used wrong type beer. Will try American lager next time. Sauce left an after-taste of mayo so might try adding some sugar or honey to it. Read More

The boil is fantastic. So simple and so good. I will prepare all of my shrimp with this boil. The dipping sauce was okay but not nearly as good as the boil. Didn't even need the sauce though as the boil gave it great flavor. I will never buy cooked shrimp again even for a shrimp cocktail. Thank you thank you. Read More
