    This was super easy & tastes pretty good. We expected a little more heat, but really it all just tasted like cumin. The lemon was a must to help mellow that dominating flavor. The ground ginger wasn't recognizable at all. I like this recipe though, so I'll just tweak it a bit next time. Made as directed, except I didn't butterfly the shrimp since I started combining all the ingredients & then found out I needed to leave the house right away. I threw everything into a Ziplock bag and it marinated overnight. We actually ate this for breakfast this morning! LOL Thanks for posting, JB! Made for ZWT-6 Team Xtra Hot Dishes! :)
