      55 delicious. I used one long hot chili and added a bit of parsley. I emulsified it in a blender and then then marinated the shrimp in room temperature for about half an hour. It smelled really good while grilling, and it tasted equally good. Thank you.

      I don't know what to say except YUM! Spicy, garlicky shrimp on the grill. I used dried chilis and had a slightly heavy hand, but we managed nicely to "suffer" through it. This is a summer must-try! Made for the Daffy Daffodils ZWT4
