I found this recipe years ago on Epicurious and have served it as a side dish for Christmas dinner every year since. It is also great for cocktail parties. Even my shrimp hating SIL loves these! **Don't let the long list of ingredients put you off. It really goes together quickly.

I'm a big fan of lemon pepper so substituted that in place of the S&P when I doubled this recipe, but otherwise followed the ingredients & directions right on down! I marinated the shrimp for almost 26 hours & served the VERY TASTY BUGGERS as finger food for a group I host ~ A big hit & most enjoyable! Thanks for a great keeper!
