    I made these shrimp as a treat for my husband. He went wild and made me promise to make them again. I only made 15 shrimp and he gobbled them all up! I served it with a big garden salad and warm crusty french bread. A wonderful meal that will be a "repeat performance" in this household. Thank you so much Bratty for sharing a great recipe. :-)

    LOVED IT!!! I only had 12 shrimp so I cut the recipe down. I also didn't have dry mustard so I used French's mustard. Delicious!! I'll be making this one quite often!

    OMG, this shrimp was wonderful! There was no unit of measure for the lemon juice, but I used 1/4 cup of it. I was unable to find any sesame oil at the store, so just used extra olive oil. The flavor was superb with just the right amount of spiciness. I purchased a bag of medium shrimp containing about 60 of them, and this was the perfect amount of marinade for them. I'll definitely be making these again. Made for Grilling Special for July in the Photo Forum. Update, I had pulled up this recipe to make it again and realized I hadn't put any stars on it. Submitting my review again to add in the stars.

    These were very good and even my semi-young son enjoyed them. I personally could have used a bit more heat, but not complaining. Will be doing these again...THANKS FOR POSTING.

Happily married and living in Missouri with my husband and a dachshund we call Bruiser. Love to cook, and especially love to entertain for our friends. I love to grill, no matter the weather, or the season...everything just tastes better on the grill IMHO.
