    I added extra garlic, as I do with every recipe. We love our garlic! I wish we had rice to serve it over, but it was good all on its own.

    We couldn't believe how good this simple, low calorie recipe was. It almost looks like it can't work, but it does beautifully. Used Greek yogurt and had with cumin infused Basmati rice.

    This is a five-star hit! Try sprinkling toasted sliced almonds on top ... it is delicious. We made this with plain Greek yogurt, as I am lactose intolerant. Served with jasmine rice and a salad made from lettuce cut into fine shreds, wafer thin sliced celery and poppyseed dressing. Toss a few of those almonds on the salad, too.

    This wonderful blending of flavors is amazing and for the calorie count it's nothing less than stellar. I made it as directed with no problems and it came together easily. Served with Jasmine rice and a fruit salad this made one delicious and memorable meal. Thanks so much for this Marra. :D

    DH and I loved these shrimp. I had mine on a bed of basmati rice. I forgot to add the chopped green onions. I'm sure I would have had to give it six stars if they hadn't been omitted. We'll definitely be making this again. Made for the Photo Swap.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
