    If you like spicy foods, you'll love this! Very, very good! I also put mushrooms,red pepper, and grape tomatoes with the shrimp on the skewers. Our Labor day picnic was a very tasty one.

    This was absolutely delicious. Not only did we use it on the shrimp, but we marinated and grilled a variety of vggies (onions, yellow & orange peppers, squash). Most tasty. A new favorite.

    We loved your shrimp!! The lime made it so fresh tasting and the pepper blend and cumin just made it POP! I do believe this is a new favorite! So, so very easy and literally takes minutes. I can't help but wonder what this would do to some nice Mahi Mahi steaks. Thanks for the great recipe :)

    Brilliant! I used golden and red grape tomatoes, red and yellow capsicum, zucchini, mushrooms, and substituted cilantro for parsley. I also marinated the veggies while I soaked the bamboo skewers for 30 minutes. Very coarsely ground pepper is wonderful.
