This surprised DH. We thought this was a great dish to have around to snack on and have with dinner. I may try it with a bit less oil next round. Otherwise, the flavors are wonderful. I even enjoyed munching on the pickled onions much to the rest of the family's chagrin. I did make the mistake of not exercising patience. I put the marinade over the shrimp before it was totally cooled. This resulted in twice-cooked shrimp that were a bit chewy. I'll have more patience next time. (Maybe next week for at the beach house!) Thanks for posting! Reviewed for PAC Spring '09
