Delicious, easy and fast! What more could you ask for? I was little confused by the instructions so basically I sautéed the onions and jalapeño and then added the shrimp and then added the rum and the brown sugar. Made by a Feed Bag for Susie’s World Tour 2019.

I cut the recipe in half...we loved the sauce...this maybe the best shrimp dish ever...although the hubby didn't notice any heat...so next time I'm going to up the jalapenos...I'm not sure what gives it the amazing flavor...the rum or the brown sugar...it's sweet but not overly sweet...it's just darn good...it could be the caramelized red onion...I don't know...just don't skip any ingredients...made for FYC tag game...this is going on my best of 2019 list...
