    luvmybge's Note:

    What a great way to eliminate the fatty bacon on barbecued shrimp recipes! After marinating the shrimp try adding liquid smoke to the marinade and brushing that onto the zucchini-wrapped shrimp to give it a nice flavor. The zucchini ribbons really keep the shrimp from drying out.. I found this recipe in Southern Living Magazine.

      Wonderful shrimp. I did increase the garlic and up the cayenne just a bit. I also popped the shrimp back into the marinade after wrapping with the zucchini ribbons to infuse the zucchini with the garlicky lime flavor. We served this with a spinach salad and Spontaneous Couscous Spontaneous Couscous. It was a wonderful summer meal. I think that these will be a great addition to my appetizer rotation, too.

      This was good - not overly spiced, and fairly plain tasting. Would go well with a stronger main course.
