Absolutely wonderful! I made half the recipe to serve alongside steak. I used 1 tsp dried basil and 2 tsp dried parsley since I did not have fresh spices. It was still awesome. Only problem now is that the kids are starting to enjoy seafood so we have to share - dang it!

i had to use dry parsley and basil ( i know sorry!!!) but that's all i had on hand. i also had to pan fry it since i have no grill. i think pan frying it was a mistake or maybe the fact that i threw everything into the pan including the marinade because it turned out too salty even tho i followed the salt part exactly. great flavor but i know the salty part is because of the marinade being thrown in w/ the shrimp into the pan. so lesson learned next time i'll just discard the marinade before throwing it into the pan. can't wait to try it w/ the fresh ingredients. but this will definately go into my favorites.
