Top Review by Nimz1466

Barb this was absolutely wonderful. I cut my very large shrimp into bite size pieces, so they cooked faster than they should have. I had to remove them from the lime juice so that they would not over-cook,and then let the juice evaporate some, then added the shrimp pieces back. Don't think it altered the taste at all. The only ingredient I added was some crushed red pepper flakes to spice it up a little more. I served it with salsa and some left over gucomole dip I had made for Pick-your-chef game. We will be making this often. Thanks for another wonderful recipe.
