A wonderful holiday appetizer.

I thought this was just okay. I tried to make it exactly as written (using medium, 26-30 count white shrimp, which I defrosted and then shelled; and Charles Shaw Chardonnay). I refrigerated the first mixture for 3.5 hours, then added the remaining ingredients. But I was then distracted for 2 more hours, so everything marinated a lot longer than written. Is it possible to over-marinate? Anyway, I cooked it and I thought the taste was just okay. I will say that I thought there was way too much liquid here. If I make this again, with the right timing, I'll cut the wine and olive oil in half.
