These shrimp were quick and easy to prepare. The flavor was good, maybe a little spicier than what I anticipated, so be careful.

Perfection. Following another reviewer, I used crushed red pepper as well. The DH was in heaven and we've had it twice in ONE WEEK! Again - perfection. Great for a "different" shrimp recipe!

Very good...I used crushed red pepper flakes instead of the cayenne and I grilled the shrimp. I didn't think these were all that spicy until I ate the leftovers the next day. They left a tingle on the tongue. Another delicious way to cook shrimp!
