48 Hour Marinated Shrimp

48 Hour Marinated Shrimp created by Nif_H

I an lucky and have a shrimp connection....I get my shrimp right off the boat! I am always looking for an even better way to serve shrimp. This is a refreshing recipe for a shrimp appetizer or a summer salad. Marinate for the full 48 hours for the best taste. Great to use at a party, because the shrimp are already peeled....no need to clean up all those shells!

    Wow! This was a hit! I made only a pound of shrimp, but honestly wished I had made more as the tray was emptied quickly. Like others I worried about the long marinating time, but the shrimp wasn't mushy at all even though I peeled the shrimp. The recipe is a keeper and catches the eye on a buffet table. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    What a great dish! Loved all the flavors -- this is a perfect party recipe. I removed the shells on the shrimp and marinated less time than the recommended 48 hours. I couldn't find white wine worchestershire sauce in the grocery, but later found another reviewer's tip as to which product to buy. Can't wait to make this dish again and believe me, there will plenty of next times. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.

    This is FANTASTIC!!!! I made 1/3 of the recipe, exactly as listed. I was afraid that the shrimp might be tough or "grainy" from sitting in this marinade for 2 days but it's just a great texture. The flavour of this is complex, the sweet and savoury flavours balancing just perfectly. I did add fresh basil and it was the perfect finishing touch! Made for Think Pink 2012. Thanks breezermom! :)

    I served this recipe for a progressive dinner a couple of months ago - prep ahead was a great benefit. People raved about it, and this is in Savannah where people know good shrimp. I used lime instead of lemon, otherwise I followed the recipe as written. Tip: white whine worcestershire sauce is now sold as Lea and Perrins marinade for chicken. We had some peel and eat shrimp last night and I bought too much, so I peeled the rest and made a bit of this salad.
