"So fast and easy to prepare, these shrimp are destined to be the hit of any barbeque. And, weather not permitting, they work great under the broiler, too."

I really think the 1 tablespoon of salt is a misprint. I've used this recipe for years mincing the garlic with 1 teaspoon of salt and with that small change the recipe is a five star-er. Actua...

It may be because I left the shrimp in the sauce for around 20 minutes before cooking, but these were way too salty. (And I love salty food.) I love the rest of the flavors, though.

The spices were just right for this recipe. It had a really good flavor. I did leave the shrimp in the garlic, salt, spice mixture to marinade for awhile and then I added the lemon juice short...

Very delicious and easy recipe. I made a few departures from the original. First, I did not put any caynne pepper (didn't have any at the time); then I added 1/2 tbsp salt, not a full tbsp. I ...

The SALT issue... 1 tbsp coarse salt is NOT a typo. There is a big difference between COARSE salt and REGULAR salt. 1 tbsp coarse salt would be equivalent to 1 tsp regular table salt. The recip...

Ive made this several times and have discovered that I need to watch my times very closly. Setting too long in the salty mixture can ruin it. I have passed this along to friends, who all enjoy...

Great flavor. I cut down the salt to 1 tsp. and added 1 tsp. of Old Bay Seasoning (because I can't imaging shrimp without it). Make sure you don't overcook!

I used less salt and more cayenne. I then prepared 2 batches - I wrapped half the shrimp in bacon before I skewered them. Both were good, but the bacon wrapped were THE hit!

I cut the salt in half like everyone else. This is spicy, but not as much as you'd think for there being 1/2 tsp of cayenne in it. My shrimp ended up sitting in the garlic/pepper mixture for a...

i made this yesterday and today because i LOVED it sooo much. i put the shrimp on top of mixed greens. yum!!! great recipe!
