These were tasty. My husband really liked them. I do have a suggestion if anyone would like to try it and that's add half oil and half butter and about 1/4 cup parm cheese. Place marinade in blender then marinate. The butter mixture will cling to the shrimp and give it more flavor while its cooking.

A definite favorite!! The marinade is so easy to prepare and can be done ahead of time. Instead of making kabobs, we used a grilling basket and cooked shrimp on the grill til it turned pink. Served over linguini with the following sauce: Saute together 1 stick butter, juice of 1 lemon, 1 T minced garlic, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1 T (or more to taste) red pepper flakes and a spash of white wine. Simply delicious!!!!!

My family absolutley goes crazy when I make this recipe. I follow the recipe exactly and it turns out incredible. I serve the shrimp with pasta that I toss with olive oil, garlic, salt, parmesan, italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. It is delicious :)
