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.
