Spicy Shrimp

If you love a  dish that packs some heat – you will love this Spicy Shrimp recipe. Marinate the shrimp one hour to up to twenty-four hours before serving.  Quick, easy and make ahead; my idea of a perfect recipe.  I like to serve this with hot crusty bread to sop of the spicy sauce.   If you like a more mild dish, decrease the amount of cayenne pepper.  When I serve this, plates are perfectly clean when finished; that is my indicator of a recipe that you will want to repeat.   The perfect accompaniment is a cold beer or a chilled white wine.
