Magnificent! Used hot chili infused oil (in marinade) so had a little zip which I loved. Used some zest in the mayo too. Easy, quick, and delicious. For photo tag.

Absolutely delighful! I made the full amount of mayonnaisse along with half the amount of shrimp and served along with a fish fillet and salad. The mayonnaisse went wonderfully with all three.
