Great lime flavor. Don't marinate too long though or the acid will cook the shrimp.

These were okay, how bad can grilled shrimp be? I only marinated them about 1/2 an hour, as the citrus will start to "cook" the shrimp. The flavors were not as intense as I expected and I even grated some lime zest into the mixture. I prefer the Lemon-Garlic Shrimp on this site and will use that, substituting limes when I have them.

All of the ingredients complimented each other very well. Easy to prepare and not too messy.

My husband does not eat shrimp, but he'll eat this recipe.

This was good, but a little too much lime flavor for us. I will try again and cut down on the lime and add more garlic and maybe some soy sauce.
