Fantastic Marinade for Grilled Shrimp

Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

To say this marinade is fantastic is an under statement --- the amounts listed enough for up to 4 pounds of shrimp and this also works well with lobster tails too --- if you are threading the shrimp on wooden skewers make certain to soak them for a minimum of 30 minutes in cold water before using, do not marinade the shrimp for more than 1 hour or the vinegar will start "cook" the shrimp, the hot sauce is only optional add in for extra heat.

I thought coming from Kittencal that this would be awesome. Very plain to me. I think the tomato sauce downed it and think a sweet red wine reduction would have been better. Sorry.
