    Boomette's Note:

    A recipe from Betty Crocker : This lovely restaurant-style appetizer can be made ahead of time. The shrimp can marinate in the lemon mixture up to 3 hours in the refrigerator before broiling. Make the basil mayonnaise up to a day ahead, and store covered in the refrigerator.

      These were wonderful! I cut the recipe by 4, and served as a main dish for 1. Based on the previous review, I only let this marinate for 1/2 hour, and it was plenty. My shrimp had a wonderful lemony flavor, and a nice bite from the pepper flakes. Instead of broiling, I cooked these on the grill, which added a nice smokey touch. I loved the basil mayo, it was the perfect complement to the shrimp.

      This recipe was simple and tasty, the lemon is very dominant, which I like, though I did add extra garlic at the end as it was pretty mild. The down side of the strong lemon is that by marinating the shrimp for two and a half hours the lemon juice started to cook the shimp, which affected the texture. I could see that the shrimp were no longer translucent after marinating so was very cautious to not over cook it, despite that they were a little rubbery and grainy. My fresh basil was in sad shape so I mixed pesto into the mayo instead, this made for a nice quick dip which that is complimentary to the shrimp. Made for PRMRT.
