"This is out of a cookbook called "Patio Daddy-O" 50's recipes with a 90's twist. If you plan to serve this with rice, try cooking the grains in coconut milk instead of water. I can see using my George Foreman grill or any outside grill to cook the shrimp. Cooking time does not include marinating time. I hope you enjoy! Cooking time does not include marinating time."

Great shrimp. I put them on metal skewers and cooked them on the Foreman Grill for 2 minutes. The flavors were great.
