    bratty's Note:

    The blend of the salsa, cilantro, and garlic are so great with the shrimp. I used hot salsa, but that's just my preference.

    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

      Don't know really what to say but "wow" comes to mind. This is a seriously spicy shrimp dish that my family thoroughly enjoyed. I also used Joe T. Garia's hot salsa. Quick, easy and packed with flavor. You done REALLY good Bratty. Oh and the name is pretty too! :0)

      Both DH and I really liked this dish. With all the spices, you want to make sure you have your fan running. It has a real nice spicy flavor. I plan to make this again. Thanks bratty for posting.

      The fresh cilantro really makes this dish. I made my own fajita seasoning (chili powder, cumen, oregano & salt). Nice and spicy!! We served it with sauteed bell peppers and onions & steamed rice. Thanks, bratty :-)
