Very good, now this was for a Valentines catering, but of course I had to pre taste. Nice. I did add scallops and shrimp vs all shrimp 3/4 each. I did add some fresh ground pepper, and 1 garlic clove minced garlic, but otherwise, exact. I served mine on small plates on a bed of micro greens. I toss the greens with orange and lime juice and olive oil. Just the smallest amount. Then a scoop of the salad. I garnish with a thin small wedge of lemon, lime and orange on the side. Definitely yummy, would definitely make again.

This was excellent. The sauce has such a full-bodied and complex flavor. Not too spicy at all, just very good. We did cut the amount of shrimp back to just 1 lb. and I substituted Hungarian yellow wax peppers for the jalapenos, because I have lots of them growing in my garden at the moment. This made 4 very generous servings. We served it in small bowls like a cold soup. I don't see how the amount I made could have ever fit into 4 glasses? Definitely will make this again. Yumm-O.
