Grilled Garlic Shrimp

"If you like garlic and shrimp, then I think you will enjoy this. We had this at a party, and couldn't get enough of it. I told a friend about how good it was, and she offered me this recipe. I make this often, we still can't get enough of it."

    This is one of my favorite ways to have shrimp! The weather hasn't been the best lately as it has been raining, so I made these on a skillet instead of the grill and were still just as delicious. One the things I did a little differently was to use the juice of 1 lemon instead of 3, and found it was the perfect amount of acidity to balance the dish out.

    Neither my DH or I could eat this. Shrimp is my favorite food, so I was sad to see it all go to waste. I'm not sure if it's a typo in the recipe, but the juice of three lemons is WAY too much. My DH said it was like eating a lemon...he took one bite and couldn't eat any more. Also, the hot butter cooked the shrimp, not the grill. By the time I grilled them, they were way overdone. Sorry, I won't make this again.

    This was AWESOME!!! I actually cooked it in an iron skillet then placed them on a baking sheet and put them under the broiler for just a bit. When the weather is nice I'll definitely be putting them on the grill! Served them with a baked potato and salad. Also made a red sauce as suggested in one of the reviews for this recipe (3/4 cup ketchup and lots of horseradish.) YUM!!! Thank you!

    And the heavens opened and said Thou shalt not BBQ tonight! I followed the recipe but in the last minute panfried the prawns - They are heavenly. We loved them and will definately make these again The tang of lemon with the garlic enhanced the flavor of the prawns Thanks bratty for a "do again" recipe - It has gone right into my fish seafood cookbook

    Wow! This was fantastic!! We made it with 1-1/2 lbs. shrimp (for 4 servings), and cut the butter in half (kept everything else the same). Also, we had limes on hand, so used lime juice in place of lemon juice. I highly recommend it!
