    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    The secret to this outstanding shrimp is the tomato paste and seasoned salt, you can double the complete recipe but keep the fresh garlic at 2 tablespoons. Plan ahead the shrimp will need to marinade for 2 hours, but no more than that or the acid in the fresh lemon juice will start to "cook" the shrimp!

      Absolutely wonderful! Much like a BBQ'd shrimp, but even better! We gobbled these up but since I doubled the recipe we had leftovers, and even they were delicious! Don't know if it's the tomato paste or the hot sauce or the seasoned salt that does it, but this combo definitely works. I can't see us making them any other way from now on - thanks so much for the recipe.
