The shrimp were incredible! Though I did let them marinate for a few minutes before grilling. I was looking for a recipe last night for what I had on hand and that I could grill and this was perfect. I adjusted the amount of angel hair to have 8 oz (though I halfed the recipe) so I could have used more olive oil, parmesan, lemon but that was my own fault!
