I have not made yet but where did the red sauce come from in the illustration? Looks good but nothing in the ingredient list would create it??

Very easy, very nice. I think it needs a little more salt. Otherwise, good!

This was a wonderful recipe! My whole family loved it and it was so easy! I think marinating the shrimp for 2 hours is what gives this recipe so much flavor. The only alteration I made was that I added the juice of one lemon to the marinade. It was such a big hit that I know it will become a favorite here in our home.
