Hello Bev, what a lovely dinner we had! We followed your recipe as was posted and it was great! I worry about the amount of heat I can tolerate but this was just perfect! We served it with plain brown rice and asparagus, what a treat! We used the jumbo shrimp instead of the smaller size. Thanks so much for posting, Diane :=)
very easy to make, really enjoyed it, but needed a bit of salt.
what a quick and easy dinner! i used colossal shrimp and had 3 servings which was perfect. nice lemon flavor with the right amount of spice. i used fresh parsley and added some fresh basil, and oregano from my garden.
