    My wife ordered this at our favorite restaurant and said it was the best shrimp she ever had. So I searched google and found this recipe...Wow she like this just as well and we used the leftover marinade to dip bread in. It was sooooo good. I will make many more times

    Great recipe. It is delicious and it was simple to make. I didn't want to grill the shrimp so I broiled them in the oven and it came out just fine.
