When its time for a BBQ, you must have Shrimp Satay. This simple yet so tasty recipes involves marinating the shrimp is a wicked sauce bringing out the full flavours. Using molasses, soy sauce, peanut butter and rice vinegar creates flavours that compliment but not overpower the shrimp. Superb side dish and snack.
