This was our lunch today. This was sooooo good. The combination of flavors in the marinade was excellent. Big thumbs up from my family.

I'm not one of those who gives their Barbeque to The Salvation Army the day after the Labor Day weekend. So what better way to celebrate a dank and drizzly Winter Solstice than to light off the grill. This Grilled Shrimp was nominated.(It had a short cooking time.I like to grill but there is no sense standing in the rain any longer than necessary.)I used 16-18 count. I find them to be more flavorful than the really large shrimp. I placed all of the marinade in a large Zip-lock bag and shook it to mix. I added the shrimp and carefully turned the bag over several times. (I didn't want to damage these beauties.) I put the bag in the fridge and set the timer for 30 minutes. Every half hour I would gently turn the bag over several times. My lunch guest begged of at the last minute. I decided to save the shrimp cooked and cold rather than take a chance on keeping them raw. They were WONDERFUL, hot for lunch. I over ate. The leftovers I bagged and stowed in the fridge. I had them for dinner cold and they were as good cold as the were hot. This one is most definitely on the list to be repeated often. Thanx

I made this recipe for company last night and it was awesome!! Used balsamic vinegar and the flavour was great! Plan to make it again next weekend.

Great stuff! I used this on prawns and I used Thai basil. The marinade worked well with the sweet flavor of the prawns.

WOW!! This was so easy and turned out some of the best grilled shrimp I have every eaten. The marinade was delicious. The basil and garlic are real stand-outs. My husband did the grilling. We will double the recipe next time. Couldn't stop eating these. Thanks.

The marinade contains so many of my favorite ingredients--basil, garlic, worcestershire, and hot sauce-- so I had to try these. Definitely a winner. The marinade gave a great zesty flavor. Couldn't believe how easy this was. Thanks Nurse Di for another super recipe.

This is really really good. I have some picky eaters in my family and this was loved by everyone.

3 out of 4 of us raved about these shrimp. I had to use dried basil (fresh wasn't available to me) and just a bit of garlic powder (the picky one doesn't like garlic). I am more than sure these would be tastier using fresh but I adjusted the recipe to suit the picky one, and go figure, he's the one that didn't like the shrimp at all. That's ok, he is out-voted! That just left more for the 3 of us that loved this recipe! Thank you very much for this keeper!

I found this bland. I am not sure how or why but I didn't enjoy.
