These are AWESOME ! You have to cook the shrimp just until pink. Do not use already cooked shrimp. These have been a favorite at all the get togethers. People even want the recipe.

Not sweet or spicy enough and I added more honey, horseradish and hot sauce than the recipe called for. It made the shrimp soggy. When they say "double the batch because they go fast" don't bother-I did and not even one batch went. Won't do this again.

Quite good, but neither as sweet nor as spicy as I'd like, will amp up when I make them again.
