      What a lovely treat morgainegeiser. It was quite unlike anything that we have tried before. We were a little leary about cooking the shrimp in the lime juice, but boy of boy do they taste good prepared this way. Thank you so much for sharing this unique recipe. All the flavors blend beautifully together to create a memorable dish, which I will make again.

      I admit that when I tagged this recipe, I had no idea the shrimp weren't cooked over heat. DH said to make it according to the directions, so I did. Since I had jasmine rice in the rice cooker which I had planned to serve with this "cooked" dish, at the last minute I threw in the marinated shrimp into the cooked rice in the cooker, and I placed atop all of the other ingredients, except for the green onion, which I held back for garnish. I neglected to pour off 1/2 lime juice before throwing the shrimp atop the cooked rice. I would do the same with the rice cooker, but I would first remove 1/2 the lime juice. Anyway, we enjoyed it as it came out! Thanks, morgainegeiser! Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap #60.
