Quick and easy recipe with big flavour. I had to leave out the cayenne because we have a heat wimp in the house. I have to admit I was doubting that 5 minutes would be long enough to marinate but that was all the time I had so that's how long it sat. Surprise! It was awesome! This is going into our summer rotation. Thanks kaid711!

This was a really wonderful and flavorful preparation for grilled shrimp! I marinated this for about 1 1/2 hours and prepared as written. Only tweak I'll make next time is a little less oil, really only needs one, two tablespoons max. Great grillining recipe, thanks for sharing with AR!

Really loved these. Recipe was bang on, flavour was amazing. I marinaded them for 1 1/2 hours and cooked as directed. I didn't make any changes, they are wonderful as written.
