Tips  

Because these shrimp will be eaten with the fingers, purchase shrimp with the tails on for a prettier look. Provide a small bowl for the tails.

This shrimp is perfect to bring to a party. You can remove it from the marinade and place in a shallow bowl. Cover with plastic wrap to tote to the gathering.
