Mean, these are wicked, evil, wicked, inferno like, wicked, molten lava-type shrimp! Did I mention wicked, lol? But absolutely delicious! It's a struggle, because they're so spicy, that you want to stop eating them, but they taste so damn good, so you have to have another, then another, and so on, lol. A great change of pace, that's for sure. I used McCormick's Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning, and all the other ingredients with no changes--we chose to use Guinness, good stuff. These cook up so fast, and the prep is minimal, but with great results. Thanks again Mean, another winner.

This does exactly what it says on the package. I served it over fettuccine as well with some stir-fried and a loaf of black olive ciabattia bread. Wonderful stuff! My only caution would be to make sure you don't use a steak seasoning with a lot of salt in it. I did, but just increased the amount of sauce to dilute the salt a bit. Next time I'll find a lower-sodium brand.

Great spicy flavor! I didn't have prawns available, and subbed a smaller shrimp. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly (except doubled it). At the last minute some friends dropped by unexpectedly. I sauteed some onions and red and green pepper strips in olive oil with a bit of butter, boiled some fettuccine and tossed the shrimp, pasta and veggies all together in a large pasta bowl. I had heated a baguette and tossed together a quick salad. Every last bite of shrimp (and pasta) was devoured. The last drops of the sauce were soaked up with chunks of the warm bread. My friends left with full tummies and smiles on their faces. Hubby has requested this shrimp again...I am thinking that he doesn't want to share next time!

Definitely wicked! We loved this shrimp dish! I used McCormicks Grill mates for seafood and that lent a little bit of lemon flavor as well. Of course, I ate mine with lemon wedges ;) Crusty bread to soak up the sauce...ice cold beer and a football game. Heaven! I actually made a pound and a half and made extra "sauce" as we love dunking the bread. Can't brag on this one enough, Mean...another fantastic recipe!

I have had this recipe sitting in my "want to try" folder for 5 YEARS!!!! I finally made it tonight and I do not know what took me so long. Loved it. My husband thought it was a bit too spicy, but this is not a surprise. It was terrific. Slight chance I will tone it down for him next time. Served simple w/ bread and a salad. Can't wait to make again.

We loved this. I made it with onions, green and red bell peppers, and fetuccini like ms_bold suggested and it was amazing.

This is SO good! Super spicy, but I like it like that... was a little much for my hubby, he couldn't finish it.

WOW! These definately have a massive KICK! Very delicious! I didn't have any rosemary, so I left that out. Next time I'll be sure and stock up, though. Also, I can't have beer or flour (gluten intolerance), so I just used 3/4 cups of white wine to make up for the beer, and used cornstarch in place of the flour. GREAT stuff!

I loved this with some crusty bread to soak up the sauce. I should have remembered a previous review to watch out on the salt, my steak seasoning had a lot of salt in it and I probably could have done without the salt, but still, not a drop went to waste and I doubled the recipe. I will be making this again.. Thanks
