"I developed this recipe because I love sweet and spicy, and I love shrimp. I serve this at every party I host and have learned to have copies of the recipe handy. I hope it finds a place in your favorite appetizer recipe box as well. Enjoy!!" — KIKI810

red wine vinegar
fresh jalapeno peppers, seeded, deveined, and finely minced
dried minced onion flakes
large cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
fresh cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Left out the cilantro (not a fan of it), otherwise followed exactly as printed...and WOW!!! Took this amazing recipe to a Church potluck, and wished I'd had the foresight to print off about 20 copies. It was well received. Thank you Kiki, great job.
I agree with a previous reviewer - this is an odd combo and not good. There is no shrimp flavor - just an overpowering marinade that is sour/sweet in a very strange way. Hate to rate this so badly but I can't recommend to anyone to waste a perfectly good batch of fresh shrimp on this recipe.
So Yummy! Added chopped cucumbers
Awesome recipe! I've taken this to several parties & always leave with an empty bowl and many requests for the recipe. I usually do use serrano peppers though, just for a little more heat. And I also add freshly sliced red onion to the marinade. Looks good served in a large glass bowl.
Everyone loved this Excellent
Huge hit at my work party. I will definetly make this again. Thanks
I didn't love these. A little too sweet for my tastes. I'll keep looking for a marinated shrimp recipe...
Great recipe. I made it for a party, and it was a hit. Everyone wanted the recipe.
