    Great recipe! We loved it! My only suggestion is that the sauce was not nearly enough for the shrimp. IMHO, the recipe's quantities are perfect for 1/2 lb shrimp if you want to "sit them" to marinade, at least if you use small ones.

    The only problem we had with this recipe was it wasn't all you can eat! What a nice dinner. Lovely flavors, simple to cook and absolutely what we were looking for in a Friday night dinner.<br/>I could eat a big bucket of these while watching a sunset on the porch. Thanks!

    5* for a 5* recipe! What an impressive dish to serve. I loved the fresh lemon, a must for shrimp as far as I'm concerned. I used the 16/20 wild shrimp, and they were big and beautiful. The simple ingredients were wonderful, especiall the kick of the red pepper flakes. A recipe all shrimp lovers will love. Made this for Jeffie's cook-a-thon, hoping that that he is better soon.

    Made this for Jeffie's cook-a-thon. We loved these shrimp! I had some pretty large ones and they were devine. I couldn't get them to "stand up" with their tails pointing up -- they sort of just laid on their side. So I broiled them for a couple minutes and then flipped them over. I hope you are feeling better, Jeff!!!
