“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!!!” - by BLONDIEPEREZ

U..." See morePDATE: I have now modified this recipe to suit our family's taste and I have to say that it is worthy of 5* now. Instead of tomato sauce, I used a whole can of diced tomatoes, doubled the garlic, more basil, 1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce, 1 tblsn of red wine vinegar, 1/4 cup oil and pulsed the lot in my food processor. Verrryyy nice."
"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...." See more"
"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 make i..." See moret on the stove, BIG mistake. I became lazy and mad waiting for my boyfriend and decided to use the stove and a skillet. It had to be scrapped, the grill allows some of the seasonings to air out especially the garlic and adds a great taste that can not be replicated on the stove."
