    echo echo's Note:

    Adapted from a recipe on the box a tube of Amore Pesto Paste came in. Quite good, I think. Preparation time doesn't include 2 hours marinating time. Instructions are for broiling but shrimp can also be grilled. PLEASE NOTE: In ingredients list, the 4th item should be "pesto paste", but the Recipezaar program turns it into "pesto sauce, paste."
