These were terrific. I've made them twice and the last time I added a package a Bay Scallops. I also added tarragon instead of onions plus a Tbs of lemon juice. Just excellent and so easy to do. Would work in the oven too. Thanks Kate in Ontario from Tebo in BC

Oh how I loved these shrimp, so full of flavor and really delicious! I squirted lemon on mine before serving as I am a lemon lover. So good!

WOW! this was great. We really enjoyed this recipe. Its one I am so sure we will make again many times. I let the shrimp marinate for several hours and than we put them on skewers and grilled them. We shared them with our friends too and of coarse the shrimp was a big hit with them too. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe.
