This is how I'm doing my shrimp from here on out! I added some hot sauce to the key lime mustard sauce but did everything exactly to the recipe. The shrimp had much more flavor in the beer than water (like I normally do). Thanks for posting this!

This was SO good! My husband and I demolished the whole 1 1/2 pounds of shrimp between the two of us. We just loved the key lime mustard....such a nice change from cocktail sauce or remoulade. I prepared everything as written and will do it again without changing a thing. Thanks for posting this easy and tasty recipe Di!

My husband and I loved this! I had 24 oz of shrimp and there is enough left for someone to have some for lunch. I loved the sauce. I do not have fat free so we used the real thing. I got the key lime juice in one of those little limes and when I used the 1/4 cup I then needed to add a little more mayo and Dijon. We will be having this again. Thanks for a great easy recipe.
