    Bayhill's Note:

    Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Mexico. From the "Mexican Cookery" cookbook. I haven't tried this recipe, but it sounds delicious. When making this dish, be sure that you don't cook the shrimp too long or leave it standing in the hot sauce, as it will become tough.

      I have made this several times for guests and my family, and it always gets raves. It's rather time consuming but is not difficult to make. I serve it with lime/cilantro rice and corn in cream salsa. For dessert, I make key lime pie with a chocolate cookie crust - top with a dollop of whipped cream, a sprig of mint and fresh red raspberries.

      This made a delicious, light dinner (without too many calories!) I served this with cilantro rice #179778 which complimented it perfectly and adding a little kick.I'm adding this to my cookbook!
