These shrimp certainly have some fire, but if you really like them spicy, adjust the cayenne pepper according to your taste. This is from a cookbook called "The Backyard Barbecue Cookbook"

Good shrimp. Since the high yesterday was 15 degrees, I did a quick sear in a hot skillet and then tossed with pasta, parmesan, black olives and sun dried tomatoes.
