Four people, 3lbs. of shrimp, 8 beers & vanilla ice cream requested afterwards. I followed the recipe as posted. At 5mins of boiling the shrimp the tails were turning pink. I continued to cook till 14mins. They were juicy & tender. They were "spicy" but no too spicy that we were unable to finish them off. I thought I might have a little heart burn due to the spice. Not a problem at all!!!! We really enjoyed these. It was a very easy recipe to make. I served them cold. I will be making this often!!!!! Thank you Shadow this is a great recipe!
