    JanuaryBride's Note:

    This is an at-home, easier version of a classic Tandoor shrimp. This one is cooked on the grill and marinated in sour cream instead of drained yogurt. From Food & Wine May 2008 edition. Note: I made this again tonight and it was raining, so instead of grilling I simply broiled them on high for 3 minutes, flipped them over and broiled them another 3 minutes to perfection. Don't forget the lime juice at the end, as it really brings together all of the flavors!!!!
