Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Marinating for a little longer will intensify the flavor slightly, but don't leave it for more than 2 hours. The marinade will start to break down the tissues in the shrimp, and the bell pepper will not be as pretty.
  • This marinade is also delicious on chicken breasts. Marinate as directed, then grill until the juice of the chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
