What a FANTASTIC find for weeknight dinners. I followed the recipe exactly. The salad is very ancillary, the shrimp would grace any salad or mixed kabob. I have every intention of also trying this marinade on chicken on some mixed kabobs. It all came together easily and made for a quick, delicious dinner.
