"A nice twist on a classic favorite. When catering I serve mine hanging from the edge of a HUGE martini glass with crushed ice in the center and a bowl of red cocktail sauce propped in the ice."

I halved the recipe, but probably should not have cut the marinade in half. Next time I will peel the shrimp before marinating. Very tasty.
