    Midwest Maven's Note:

    I love shrimp and these have lots of flavor. And you can adjust the spiciness to your own preference.

      Very good and easy to do!! My shrimp were well-coated and coloured, maybe I was a bit enthusiastic with the spices, but we enjoyed them, not overly spicy, and went well with the pasta I had prepared. Many thanks for a good recipe, prepared for ZWT5
