This is a favourite with friends and family and I usually have to make much more than a single recipe calls for. Wonderful for that 'something special' needed for the holidays.

Oh my, my, my. These were excellent! I had my dad over for dinner and wanted to set out a impressive spread. I served these as an appetizer and wow, what a hit they were! I marinated the shrimp for about 5 hours. Such great flavor and these were really easy to make. Evelyn, you never let me down! Thank you.
