This had good flavor but was much too salty for us, even when I added some cooked diced chicken to the mix. Next time we'll leave out the salt and use olive oil instead of butter.

My boyfriend made this for me last night. He used 2 pounds of shrimp, weighed at the store with the shells and tails on. He doubled everything in the recipe except the salt which he measured as stated in the recipe. We agreed that any more salt would have been too salty, and he likes his salt. Our garlic cloves were quite big. When we make this again (it's a keeper) if the garlic cloves are small, we'll use more because we liked it nice & garlicky. We added the lime almost at the end of cooking, and we squeezed more lime at the table. I don't know how this could be 4 servings. The two of us ate almost all of the doubled recipe for dinner, but we didn't bother with any side dishes, unless wine counts as a side dish. :) We loved it. Next time we'll probably use some fresh parsley and for sure have some good bread because the butter and spices make it nice & saucy. .

I liked this but my husband thought it was too salty. I will make again and not add as much salt.

Adding the lime juice to the shrimp too early produced a shrimp that was more like steamed. I would prefer to saute the shrimp first to brown them and then add the squeeze of lime at the end. Also adding the juice at that time washed the spices off the shrimp. I would not make this again. Sorry.

I doubled this recipe thinking that there would be left overs for lunch. Wrong! We ate every bite, my husband licked his plate (literally) and I licked the pan. Amazing and super easy. I would love to try some fresh parsley next time but it's great even with dried. Lime, butter & shrimp are a great combo.

This is an easy recipe and quite tasty. Good mix of flavours, nice and citrusy! I used half shrimp and half scallops (because that's what I had on hand) and tossed with a spagettini pasta. I did find it a little on the salty side, but that is strictly a personal preference. Good recipe! I will make this again.

These were yummy! I just cut back on the salt, maybe even to 1/2 (could still do bit less), and that seemed great!. Put them on a tangy caesar salad, and would be happy to do that again! Thx for sharing!

Absolutely loved it! Made it with a third the salt and was perfect. Used Hungarian hot paprika and just about melted our tast buds. Regular paprika next time........
