Super easy and makes a great entree/appetizer for an outdoors meal. Can be cooked also in a large pan or grilled. You can add some yogurt or sour cream to the dipping sauce if you wish- if you do cut back on the lemon juice

We were crazy about the shrimp, but not so much the dipping sauce. For the shrimp, I added some minced fresh garlic and drizzled a little melted butter over the skewers before broiling. The shrimp tasted like heaven, and the spice combination was interesting and great. The dipping sauce was so very sharp, and I had cut it with 2 T. mayonnaise. Most folks at dinner skipped the sauce and savored the shrimp. Yum!

Made this recipe to serve 3 of us & tripled the amount of sauce, so we'd have a lot of it! VERY, VERY TASTY & it was a delight to serve! I'm not terribly big on the use of cumin, but followed the ingredient amounts anyway & was very pleased with the results ~ The recipe is a definite keeper! Thanks for sharing it!
