I developed this recipe because I love sweet and spicy, and I love shrimp. I serve this at every party I host and have learned to have copies of the recipe handy. I hope it finds a place in your favorite appetizer recipe box as well. Enjoy!!

Left out the cilantro (not a fan of it), otherwise followed exactly as printed...and WOW!!! Took this amazing recipe to a Church potluck, and wished I'd had the foresight to print off about 20 copies. It was well received. Thank you Kiki, great job.

Awesome recipe! I've taken this to several parties & always leave with an empty bowl and many requests for the recipe. I usually do use serrano peppers though, just for a little more heat. And I also add freshly sliced red onion to the marinade. Looks good served in a large glass bowl.
