Very good but definitely not for someone who likes their spice to the wimpy side!lol Luckily both DH & I enjoy spicey hot food. I served the shrimp over jasmine rice and sauteed snow peas on the side. Thank you Mean for sharing the recipe.

Spicy! We agreed it was good but the sauce took away from the shrimp - we have agreed that we like our shrimp much better with a garlic spicy buttery sauce than a bbq style.

This is a very good recipe. If you like spicy, you will love it. I served it over plain rice and I used large shrimp instead of medium. It was simple and quick to make.
