    Can I marinade this overnight?  -  25 Jan 2014


    We enjoyed this marinade because it enhances the flavor of the shrimp by added great flavor without overpowering it. I wouldn’t change a thing.  -  03 May 2013


    If you marinate shrimp to long they can tend to 'cook' which changes their texture and makes them a bit tough.  -  29 Jan 2014
