      This was so tasty! I made these when a friend came over to visit. Unfortunately w only had cocktail shrimp, but they turned out really good anyway, they were just a little harder to grill properly. I doubled the amount of garlic I added, cause we just love garlic that much. My mom has already asked me to make them again soon. Thanks for sharing this treat with us!

      I made this with large shrimp and it was super delicious! I "grilled" them on a stove top grill pan and they still came out smoky and grillelicious. The marinade may not seem to be enough, but the shrimp will release a little of its own juices, so it is plenty. Thanks for posting. Made for Unrated Asian Tag 2009.
