Best darn spicy shrimp recipe I've ever tasted. My friend Chuck sent me this recipe and I was going to post it here at the Zaar.. only to find that someone else found this recipe worth posting... so I'll just post the picture. I served this with steaming rice and a nice French baguette. It was fantastic! I originally posted this review on Dec 15, 2002 and sent the picture in on the same day. As of today (1-30-03) the picture is still not posted.. sorry.. nothing I can do about it.

Good recipe, but I found the lemon juice plus 2 lemons a little tart. Next time I would only use 1 lemon. Thanks for posting.
