    MarraMamba's Note:

    As Bon Appetit says, the sauce does double duty, part baste and later dipping. From the june 1990 issue of bon appetit. I changed it a little by adding jalapeno, but you can omit.

      So good and so easy. I added more jalapeno and also some garlic powder per a previous review. DH and I really enjoyed this. Thank you. Made for Herb & Spice -- Chives tag game.

      Delicious! I reduced the Dijon to 3 tablespoons, increased the jalapeno and also added in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder to the mustard/lemon mixture, thanks for sharing Marra!

      So easy, so good. I did do them on top of the stove as I was only cooking for one so it seemed easiest to me. While I could taste lemon I didn't think it was too much. I do love lemon though. I attempted to cut the recipe to about 1/4 and now I have enough for my lunch tomorrow. I think my office mates will be jealous. I poured the shrimp over spaghetti which was nice but you do get the full impact of the mustard and lemon. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
