This was really good. We served it over orzo pasta and the flavors went together really great. I loved that there was a great spice, but not much heat. I did make one small change, I marinated the shrimp in the cumin, chili powder, garlic, and 2-3 Tbsp of the lime juice for about 15 minutes while. This was a great new recipe for shrimp, we will make it again!

I have been making this since it first came out in Cooking Light. My family likes it so well we actually included it in a family cookbook. The first time I made this I was surprised at how good it tasted given the very ordinary ingredients. This goes together quickly and is a great weeknight meal (though it is tasty enough for company). If you buy already peeled and deveined shrimp the prep time is even quicker. I would highly recommend this dish! Thanks for posting LMillerRN.
