I made this for my boyfriend to accompany his steak, and he liked the shrimp a lot better than the steak itself (and he still really liked the steak). I only made 1 skewer, so I scaled back on the marinade mixture a lot. Instead of jerk seasoning, I used Cajun seasoning because I had some on hand. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I didn't eat them because I'm a vegetarian, but I have to admit they smelled great! - 22 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was pretty good. I made it according to the recipe but scaled back a bit on the spicy stuff. It took longer than five minutes on each side on the grill. Made it with Roasted Vegetables on this site (AWESOME)and margaritas. Thanks. - 02 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were very good. We had them for our Good Friday dinner and I bought large wild pink shrimp at Wegmans that were very easy to peel (they were pre-deveined) and I marinated them for several hours. I put them on bamboo skewers that I had soaked for several hours in water. My husband grilled them until they were done and I served them with pineapple coleslaw. The only thing missing was some sort of light sauce. They were flavorful but I missed having a sauce to dip the shrimp into. I will certainly make again! - 24 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
