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!

I used a seafood blend, a mixture of mini scallops, calamari and shrimp. I marinated for 45 minutes, then pan sauteed as they were too small for the grill. I liked the flavors very much, but I think next time I will use larger shrimp and let them marinade overnight. Made for ZWT 8.

These were very good! I only had large-ish shrimp at home, so I marinated and cooked on a bbq pan instead of skewers. Next time, I will add a little more kick like chili flakes and more garlic. Made for ZWT 8

My husband and I loved it!! The zest really brings out the wonderful lemon flavor. Picked the fresh basil right from my garden! Will make again!! Thanks!

We did this recipe while camping so the picture isn't as pretty or as nice as the other ones posted. I forgot to sprinkle with salt - but the kids really liked them without so that was good! :) I didn't have basil leaves so added parsley to the marinade for camping purposes. These cooked nicely over the grill and were easy to prepare! Thanks for sharing! Made for the July 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
