Great marinade for shrimp!! But i changed the recipe and was glad i had. I cut the measurements in half and reduced the oil to 1 cup based on other reviews, and still had plenty of marinade for 50 large prawns. Also cut the salt/pepper to 1tsp each. And I cut out the oregano, wanting the cilantro to shine. It was so easy and made the shrimp so tasty. We grilled instead of sauteeing them, and it was a huge hit!

I think the measurements are off - 1/4 cup of salt is way too much. This already has lime & vinegar so I reduced the salt to 1 teaspoon and reduced the oil to just 2 tablespoons. With those modifications, I was still left with lots of marinade left over, which I simply cooked and poured over some white rice. Very tasty!!
