This is a delicious, spicy, quick and easy shrimp appetizer or dinner that is ready in only 10 minutes. I like a medium spice level and the spice level was just right for me. If you like a mildly spiced dish, I recommend cutting back on the cayenne. Next time I think I would like to grill the shrimp instead. Thanks for sharing the recipe SlimCookins.
