    I saw this recipe on the Self magazine website. Looks fabulous - would make such a nice pool side treat this summer! I thought I would store it here for safe keeping. If you try it, please let me know what you think! I'll keep you posted, if I get a chance to make these anytime soon!

      The flavor is excellent but there is not enough marinade for the amount of shrimp, I had to double it and it was still barely enough. Other than that, a 5 star recipe.

      Very good marinade. I skewered the shrimp with red pepper, sweet onions and grape tomatoes. Yummy!

      O.K. Annie, I tried your recipe and all I can say is ZOWIE!!! Great recipe and the marinade worked super. I used jalapenos because that's all I had and found that one jalapeno on each end and one in the middle is simply to hot four my tastes. Could be because I did't remove the seeds and membrane. I'll use a milder pepper next time and do it right. There will be a next time!
