Very simple to make! The marinade came together in minutes. I really like the flavor of the marinated shrimp. Neither DH nor I loved the voodoo sauce, it was good, but we preferred the shrimp without. I couldn't find the Lucky Boy brand of sweet chili sauce and ended up buying Dynasty brand which I think gave the sauce a "processed" after taste. This may be the reason we didn't care for it, but I would suggest looking for a different brand of sweet chili sauce. I used shrimp on the smaller size so I only grilled them for about 8 minutes. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
This was very good! I loved the marinade. I actually preferred the shrimp without the VooDoo sauce. But the sauce was good also. This was a very easy dish to put together. I had planned to grill the shrimp but it was pouring down rain so I chose to stay dry and saute them! Thanks for sharing! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
