      These were so yummy! I can't imagine using this recipe for an appetizer because I had to eat a whole meal of them! The only difference I would make would be to at least double the sauce and use it as a marinade as well - it's very good! 3 of us split this recipe and enjoyed them with Rich Baked Artichoke Chicken. Made for Kittencal's Grilling Game. Thanks Lauralie41! :)

      What's not to love? Wonderful intro to the barbecue season, "shrimp on the barbie"! I had issues basting the shrimp properly, but I blame that on it being my first time to grill kebabs on the grill. Guess I'll have to practice . Served with steamed brown rice, broccoli, carrots, sugar snap peas, and water chestnuts; DH had Foster's Lager and I had an Australian white wine by Yalumba, South Australia "Viognier", a rare grape variety that is "rich, luscious, and silky with citrus, tropical fruit and lychee flavors. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Lauralie. Made for ZWT5 as "Slice of Lime Babe" KateL of the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes.
