Recipe by Kozmic Blues
I adapted this recipe from one I found in Gourmet Magazine grilling issue. I added a bit more brown sugar to the sauce to take some of the bite out of the Worcestershire. The original recipe called for the shrimp to be broiled in their shells. Today happened to be in the high 90's, so I decided to cook these, peeled, in the sauce over the stove...ANYTHING to not have to turn the broiler on!! I think they turned out great. Next time I think I will definitely try these on the grill.

This is a Killer good recipe! I had some lemon rice to go with it and we were very happy with the results! I bought the ready to go shrimp, so it wouldn't take me long to make, as we were hungry and I decided to make it at the last minute. Loved the taste so much. DH says this is a keeper and I agree whole heartedly! Thanks for sharing Kozmic!
