      Delicious! We loved these spicy, and very yummy shrimp. We really enjoyed the addition of the cilantro and jalapeno which kicked the flavor up another notch. Since my family loves both of these ingredients, I was probably a little more generous in the amounts that I used. Other than that, I made the recipe exactly as written, using all of the optional ingredients and marinating the shrimp for about 6 hours. I seved this with my Easy Seafood Cocktail Sauce and my family ate them up in a hurry. I quickly realized that I should have made a double batch. Thank you for sharing this wonderful is definitely a keeper!! *Made for 8th Annual Photo Swap*

      Made this recipe as part of our dinner, rather than as appetizers, but another time these great little tasties will definitely be on my finger food counter ~ ABSOLUTELY LOVED THEM! I did cut back a little on the mount of jalapeno I used, but other than that, the recipe was followed, optional & all! Did make the cocktail sauce, though! Served with a simple brown rice, this made for a very fulfilling dinner! [Made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday tag]
