    ~Leslie~'s Note:

    Use this recipe as a template for other shrimp skewers. If you don't have honey mustard, stir a little honey into Dijon. Limes would also work well instead of lemons. And if you're finding your home-grown chives or parsley getting out of hand, substitute them for the basil. These need to marinate for 45 minutes before cooking.

      We made two shrimp on the barbie tonight and we thought this one could have had a little kick to it. I think that the marinate time might need to be longer than the 45 minutes, next time I will marinate it several hours to pick up on the lemon flavor. They were good, but I think they could be better. Made for ZWT8.

      Due to a time crunch I wasn't able to let my shrimp thaw out properly or marinade for the full time span and so I think the flavour was a little watered down. Definately something I want to try again, but even so, it was quite yummy with some spaghettini!
