    I don't know who Ricardo is, but I bet he's a good chef! I followed this exactly except forgot to peel my shrimp, but no matter it still came out delightfully enchanting. For those nay-sayers who, think this is "hot" I can reassure you that it's not. Just a wonderful mixture of a bit of spice along with the succulent, savory taste of grilled shrimp. I only basted once, upon turning this over, but let me tell you this is one great recipe! I marinated for 1 hour. Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* July 2009

    Wonderful shrimp! DH even commented on how good they were and he's a very hard sell. Made for ZWT9

    I don't know who enjoyed these better, us, or our neighbors that enjoyed the aroma coming from my grill, seeing that the wind was going right to them. I did add a tad more tomato paste, though. These were fablous though. Made for Holiday tag.

    This was fantastic, even though I screwed up a bit. I had 18 extra-large shrimp, so I made 6 skewers of three each. I made the marinade using 2 T. of McCormick's Hot Chili Seasoning Mix. Coupled with the cayenne, the end result was quite spicy (but that's the way I like it). Unfortunately, I forgot to add the tomato paste. After marinating for several hours, I realized my mistake, and had to stir it in then. It still combined well, and had another hour or so to marinate. Since a thunderstorm was on the horizon, I ended up using the oven broiler. These came out absolutely wonderfully, and were gone almost as soon as they reached the table. I will be making these again! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.
