Delicious combination of flavors! Loved the lemon with the shrimp. I didn't change a thing in the recipe, but did use more lemon as I love it. It was awesome! I had along with Lemon Rice and it was a great combination! Thank you for posting Kyle, and I really enjoyed it! Will be making again sometime soon. Made for Spring PAC 08.

This is very close to a recipe I had from a diabetic assn. Believe me, it is good. I can't make any additional comments on hers. It is just perfect. Try it.
