Top Review by Baby Kato

These shrimp were very very tasty. The added coconut milk and jalapeno really kick this up a notch. I had to go out so left the shrimps in the marinade for most of the day, so the shrimp had a really pronounced flavour. We loved these and will make again. Thanks for sharing.
