    Galley Wench's Note:

    So simple, yet so tasty! Found this recipe in The Gourmet Cookbook. Serve as an appetizer or use the jumbo shrimp and serve as the entree!. A refreshing balance of hot and sour!

      I would like to thank Galley Wench for posting this recipe. This is one of those recipes where you don't alter a single ingrediant. Make it exactly as instructed. If you pan fry it, turn your heat up as hot as you dare but you are much better off grilling it super hot and getting sear marks on the shrimp. Fantastic taste and flavor. Made for New Years Eve party with a Mexican theme.

      We enjoyed the intense flavors of this dish, but felt it overpowered the shrimp. Which we didn't really taste. I pan fried mine and wish I had grilled them. I served with steamed broccoli and rice pilaf. My shrimp were a bit smaller, I used 31-40 count. I cut the recipe in half serving 2 people with 8 shrimp each. Made for Top Favorites of 2009 tag game. Thanks for posting. :)
