Well,well, well. THIS IS ASWESOME! Tagged for 1-2-3 tag 2008. I used large shrimp in stead of rock shrimp, the red pepper flakes option, used no salt (dietary and cooked on an indoor grill. Sprayed grill with cooking spray oil, grilled for 2 min on 1 side and then turned over to complete cooking. Fantastic, fast, and delectable. I love shrimp as does my family and this was and wilbe a regular in my house. Served with flavored rice and sauteed green beans. This is a keeper!
