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.
