This recipe was originally used as a dressing for cedar planked salmon. I decided to use it as a marinade for shrimp. It worked beautifully. Gives the shrimp an excellent flavor. From the Weber's Real Grilling Cookbook

The whole family enjoyed this recipe. I had let the shrimp marinade for two hours the first time I made it and for about an hour the second time... Both delicious. I used a little sweet onion, as I didn't have the chives, and I added about a 1/2 T more of the lime juice (just to use what I had juiced), but that's definitely something you can adjust per your taste of course. Wonderful!

Delicious! This was a hit with my 4 year-old daughter as well as my husband who is not a huge seafood fan. Very fresh and light tasting. My new go-to recipe for shrimp skewers.

This was excellent!!! Great flavor and very easy. I forgot to get limes at the store, so I used fresh orange juice instead. I let my shrimp marinate about 8 hours before grilling. This is definitely a repeat!
