First time for us to grill shrimp and I looked at many recipes and chose this one. Really glad as I liked the sweet and spicy. I used apple jelly as I could not find the other one. Only thing next time I will increase the amount of sauce as we ended up not having enough for dipping but it was perfect. Thank you

Made tonight for fathers day & it was a hit. Very easy to make and not to spicy. Both kids and adults loved it. I doubled the recipe & barely had enough glaze for 2 lbs of shrimp.
