This was a really great recipe. I'm always trying to find new ways to use up shrimp and this was definetly a crowd pleaser. I served the shrimp with rice and corn on the cob. It was a perfect way to kick off the summer.

This is a do over in my house. I marinated the shrimp overnite and they were delicious!! This marinade was very tasty with a little bit of heat from the pepper flakes. My family loved it and it will definitely be a do over at my house.

I expected more flavor from the marinade - especially after all of the raving reviews but it was just ........ good, not great. I followed the recipe exactly, rare for me, but there's little sense in changing a recipe then reviewing the original and criticizing it. Keep in mind that any citrus, especially lime juice, begins to "cook" raw seafood .... so if you marinade the shrimp for a longer exposure to the ingredients you have effectively prepared a variant of ceviche. I think if I were to make this again I would suggest reserving the marinade until the shrimp are just about finished on the grill and pour it over the shrimp to create a "glaze" on the shrimp.

Easy to prepare and excellent flavor. The light flavors of the citrus and herbs enhance the flavor of the shrimp without overpowering it.

Awesome grilled shrimp Ron! I followed the recipe exactly, marinating about 4 hours and got wonderful results. I skewered the shrimp on wooden skewers to grill them and the flavor was incredible. They had a wonderful light citrus and herb flavor with a little kick from the red pepper flakes. I highly recommend using the fresh herbs to get great results. This recipe is a definite keeper!

This recipe is a must for every shrimp lover. Don't skimp on using dried herbs, either. Definitely worth the work and $$$!!!

Absolutely delicious! I used some of the marinade on some fresh asparagus and we grilled them as well.
