I mean really, look at them, aren’t they sexy? Its like food porn! I like things that are sweet and spicy spicy HOT! Most people do Lime-Chili shrimp, but I am not a fan. I decided to try orange chili and put it in a cup to have as a sexy appetizer and they were a hit! They are really simple it just takes some assembling. Ready? Lets go sexy shrimping!
