"A very simple and easy marinade that makes your shrimp so yummy you don't even need cocktail sauce! Don't let the cayenne pepper scare you, you don't even taste it. My 2 and 4 year-olds love it and eat more shrimp than their parents! It is also a big hit with company, and easy to prepare. I make this with frozen or fresh shrimp and use my indoor electric grill if the weather is not good for outside grilling. Try it with a salad, baked potato, and garlic bread. You will not be disappointed!!!"

These were very nice. I was expecting outstanding flavour for five stars though and this just didn't make it. Next time I would add sweet chilli sauce, more tomato and garlic. Fresh basil is a m...

This is a super simple and yummy recipe. The only thing I did differntly is used ketchup instead of tomato sauce, as I didn't want to open a large can of tamato sauce for such a little amount.

For a small Oscar Party I made an arrangement of skewer recipes. My friend Kristi ABSOLUTELY loved this one. But a word to the wise, if you for some reason not to grill the shrimp and instead ...
