Aahhh another FAV from GOURMET MAGAZINE. PERFECT as a SUMMERTIME GRILL APPY! Have plenty of Crusty Bread to dip into any leftover dressing! NOTE: Number of servings vary on size per lb for shrimp.

Very good! I put the shrimp on skewers and put them under the broiler for two minutes on each side. I served on top of Kittencal's greek lemony rice with feta. I would highly recommend to anyone.
