I loved this, and I don't even like shrimp! My only suggestion is to make sure the shrimp is completely unfrozen. (That may be a duuuuuh to someof you, but I'm new to this cooking thing!). My shrimp was a little frozen still which made the marinade runny, which made it difficult to stay on the shrimp!

Great shrimp! I halved the recipe for just my husband and myself and used just 1/4 C. of the olive oil, which seemed to be the perfect amount. I used red wine vinegar, which gave the shrimp a nice twang, and dried basil from last year's garden. Marinated for about 3 hours then grilled to perfection. We loved these and they're SO quick and easy. I'll be doing this one all summer! Thanks for the recipe :)

I like to prep early in the morning for the evening meal on the weekends... I picked up a bunch of shrimp from my local farmer's market in the a.m., prepped and then marinated for several hours. Unbelievable! The flavor was perfect! I used a very small varietal of basil from my garden and the tiny leaves were particularly well suited to this application. As others have already stated, the shrimp are delicious hot off of the grill, the next day cold on a salad AND particularly tasty addition to a reheat (heated the soup then floated the cold shrimp into it while it stood off of the heat) of Eggplant (Aubergine) Parmigiana Soup, Eggplant Parmigiana soup! Try it, you won;t be disappointed!

I over cooked these so they ended up chewy (still getting used to the new grill) but the flavor was very nice. Not spectacular but the recipe was quick, easy and yummy. This may become our 'workhorse' grilled shrimp recipe. Thanks.

The best! With no hot sauce available I crushed a dried chille pepper in the marinade.

I love shrimp, but the grill taste was way to over powering. next time we will make it on the stove top.

Fantastic! I took another reviewers advice and used 1/2 cup oil andyour recipe amount of everything else (because we like things very flavorful.) Added a bit of salt, pepper and lemon juice to the marinade. The shrimp were so big we just put them right on the grill. Served with fresh sauteed sweet corn and an avocado salad - a perfect summer meal. Thank you!!!
