      This recipe is really wonderful! Recently, I started cleaning up my diet trying to cook & eat healthier. This is low in calories and fat, is super tasty and really fills you up. It's great with brown minute rice on the side. I also added more hot sauce for more kick.

      My husband makes this dish for me whenever we have shrimp in the house. The first time he made it was when we had a picnic planned before seeing a play when we were dating. Unfortunately, we got stuck in traffic and didn't have enough time for our picnic and we ate it while sitting in traffic. It was still scrumptious! The flavors work so well together, and I love the spice, we kick it up a few notches and it is the best!
