Since I would not ruin good shrimp with mint, I substituted 2 cloves of garlic for it and reduced the sugar to 2 tablespoons. This made an excellent marinade to some great shrimp.

This is a great marinade, very easy to put together and it imparts a wonderful flavor on the shrimp! Can't wait to try it on other types of fish.
