FABULOUS! I just logged on to enter this recipe because I didn't want to lose it. I was so glad to see that ChefDebs already has it up here. I originally found this in the San Francisco a la Carte junior league cookbook copyrighted in 1979. I always add some Dijon mustard, fresh basil and fresh black pepper to the marinade. I have never taken this any place without being asked for the recipe or receiving a call at home shortly after people have had this. I usually make the marinade the day before so that all the flavors are well married. Makes for a real quick "put together" on party day. I just put the shrimp in the cold marinade, in the bag, as soon as they are done. The to serve, I just dump the whole thing into a long bowl with some depth and serve with a fancy little toothpick stand next to the bowl. Bon Appetit!
