    Mt husband and I made these for dinner tonight. It was a bit of a pain to devein the shrimp and keep the shells intact, but in the end, doing so was well worth the effort. These have a nice kick, but the heat is not overpowering.

    These were quick, easy and absolutely delicious! Added more sriracha on the side and will probably add more to the marinade next time.
