These were fantastic! We will cook these again soon. They were so nice and spicy. Thanks for posting this recipe.
These were a bit salty for my taste. I brined them with the shells on and then peeled them, then skewered them and grilled them. I liked the red color they took on and the little bit of spice from the cayanne. DH really liked them. We ate them with lemon spaghetti (Giada's http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Lemon-Spaghetti-From-Giada-319594). Great for a summer's night!
i took shells off after brining. very tasty. I love salt but found these to be a little too salty. next time i'll reduce the salt in the spice paste. will for sure make again!
This recipe is awesome!!! We took the shells off after the brining step was done, and the flavor was so intense. Very spicy, and we loved every bit of it. Thank you for this keeper.
I really liked it. It reminded me of something you would order in a restaurant. I grilled them with the shells on. Next time I will remove the shells so the garlic and spice is more on the shrimp. Also this would be great added to a pasta dish.
Tonite we had a taste test of 4 different grilled shrimp recipes. I liked that the shrimp came out tender and juicy! It cooked perfectly and I could swear they looked bigger than the other ones! (maybe my imagination or due to the brining process). I also liked the spicyness of it. The only thing I felt needed to be adjusted was the salt. I'm not sure if it was because of the brine or the paste, but I'll keep playing with it 'til I get it right for my tastebuds because I liked it so much. Thanks!
I am usually not a shrimp eater, but these were WONDERFUL! Just the right amout of spice! I used raw frozen shrimp. Waited for them to thaw in the fridge, didn' use the brine. But the marinade was fantastic! and just the perfect amount for 2 lbs. of shrimp! I think it was as good as Red Lobster! They were great! We grilled them for a little more than 3 min on each side. They were perfectly done, moist, and tasted great! Thank you!
This is just wonderful and so easy to make. I used frozen pre-cooked shrimp, as that was all that is available in my area, so I skipped the brining. It was so tasty, moist and a sure hit at our house! We'll make this again. Thank you!!
These are really delicious. The brine and marinade time pays off with tender, juicy,great tasting shrimp. I used jumbo size shrimp and was glad I did. We all got an extra bite per shrimp. Also added just a splash of sesame oil to the paste/marinade.
