These shrimp are awesome! Add some cayenne pepper to the sauce to give it a little more kick if you like it spicy.

I made this recipe and added teriyaki sauce to original buffalo sauce. Flavor was AWESOME. Wii definately make again.

This is a great recipe and easy to make. We used Frank's Wing Sauce and it tasted just like Hooter's.

I made these last night, and they were excellent. They taste exactly like the Hooters' Buffalo Shrimp. I got crazy with the cayenne, so they were extra-hot. (It's how we like it though.) These tender morsels disappeared in no time. I'll definitely make these again soon...but I think next time I will be trying this recipe on boneless chicken strips (cheaper, and no deveining to worry about).
