      Simply wonderful! We set these shrimp atop Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta and marveled at what a great combination this was. To us it was spicy but not fiery, JUST THE WAY WE LOVE IT! The name says it is "Spiced", so don't expect it to be otherwise. Avocado oil doesn't have a strong "avocado" taste; instead it lends a mellow finish, but it boasts a very high smoke point, so it is perfect for stir-frying. For example, I think olive oil imparts too strong a flavor for shrimp, but avocado oil is perfect for shrimp. So, just think about what your oil is contributing in terms of smoke point and taste, and pick the one that best suits your goal. Made for "I Recommend" tag game based on the recommendation by ForeverMama.

      Flavorful shrimp for sure! Very good and easy to make shrimp dish. Especially good with lime juice squeezed over the top. Will definitely make this again especially through both my daughters request (both my girls LOVE shrimp). Thank you Irish in the City for sharing. PAC Spring 2014.
