Horseradish Shrimp

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Dee514

I resurrected an old appetizer recipe today that I hadn't used in several years. I used to make these frequently when we had our back yard barbecues. Well, hubby and friends gave them rave reviews! I guess they are back on the "official barbecue menue" at our house. (I usually double the recipe because they do go fast!) Prep time does not include 2 hour refrigeration time.

My family preferred the shrimp sans tails so that is how I prepared them. They loved them, actually ended up making them the following weekend as well.
