I don't know who Ricardo is, but I bet he's a good chef! I followed this exactly except forgot to peel my shrimp, but no matter it still came out delightfully enchanting. For those nay-sayers who, think this is "hot" I can reassure you that it's not. Just a wonderful mixture of a bit of spice along with the succulent, savory taste of grilled shrimp. I only basted once, upon turning this over, but let me tell you this is one great recipe! I marinated for 1 hour. Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* July 2009
Wonderful shrimp! DH even commented on how good they were and he's a very hard sell. Made for ZWT9
I don't know who enjoyed these better, us, or our neighbors that enjoyed the aroma coming from my grill, seeing that the wind was going right to them. I did add a tad more tomato paste, though. These were fablous though. Made for Holiday tag.
