My husband was "starving" so I looked on my phone for a quick recipe to satisfy this picky eater... I found this one and crossed my fingers. He says he doesn't like ginger, lime juice, sesame oil, or soy sauce, so I didn't tell him what was in the marinade LOL... I added some cayenne because I didn't have hot oil, and I added a splash of the beer he was drinkin. Quote: "And that is a recipe we ARE SAVING. One of the best shrimp meals I have ever had!" Thanks for proving him wrong again LOL!!!!

Another winner from Rita! Loved everything about this! Just a slight hint of sweet from the brown sugar, but loved the zip from the red pepper. Thanks for developing this one Rita!! Made for a Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens - ZWT6.
