These shrimp kabobs are delicious, even it they are healthy, with using the smart balance buttery spread. My family loved the flavor of the creole butter on the shrimp. The only changes I made was one: I doubled the recipe and two: I only used 1/8 teaspoon of ground red pepper, so for me the heat was mild , which is just right. My family does like hot stuff, but I need to eat it also, other than those two changes I made the recipe as written. Made for ZWT9 - The Apron String Travelers for the Holy Trinity Challenge.
