Girl, these are so, so good! I can't believe the simplicity of it. The lime juice and sugar glaze was so easy to make and absolutely delicious. I admit to using WAY more garlic than called for, and about 1/2 teaspoon of chili flakes. This truly did create a beautiful silky glaze that coated my jumbo shrimp to perfection. Best recipe I've made all year - and is going straight into my Best of 2020 file. Thanks for sharing!
