Recipe by Cook Lace

This recipe came from our local paper. The original recipe did not peel the shrimp but I prefer to do that when they are cold instead of hot. We do not always skewer the shrimp. I have also cooked them on the stove top in a hot skillet and had it come out fine. It is a favorite in my family, often being requested for birthday dinners. Prep times includes 30 minutes of marinating time.
