This is DELICIOUS Chippie! I cannot stop eating it! It's even good at room temperature! I omitted the crushed red pepper flakes due to personal preference and added just a splash of dark rum. To die for! Simple and SO yummy! Thanks for posting!

Best shrimp on the grill I have ever made! I served with Lemon Spaghetti-lemon spaghetti and had grilled asparagus on the side. The intense garlic flavor really complimented the lemony flavor of the pasta. Thanks for posting!

Delicious marinade. I marinaded the shrimp for 30 minutes before grilling. I loved the flavor, though next time I may use more garlic. Definitely a keeper.
