Spitfire Shrimp

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by dicentra

This is a recipe that I adapted slightly from Rachael Ray. It is fantastic and has unusual flavors. It tastes even better the second day after the flavors have soaked into the shrimp. Serve with rice pilaf and a green veggie or salad to make it a main dish.

Dicentra...these were yummy. I served them chilled. I used only 1 ounce of Cholula hot sauce and the dish was plenty hot. Thanks!!
