These were easy to make and had a nice flavor. It seemed like there was just something missing, so I gave it a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and that did the trick. These shrimp have a very pretty color and make a nice presentation. I marinaded in zip-loc plastic bags, made clean up easy. And instead of threading on skewers I cooked the shrimp in my grill basket for ease of cooking and eating. Otherwise I followed the directions exactly.
