    Don't let this simple recipe fool you. It's delicious! I'm always looking for simple recipes that are flavor-packed because I'm lazy and this totally fits the bill. This will become one of my new go-to recipes.

    Loved it.. this was so esay and super quick once the shrimp had been cleaned. Since I only made these for myself tonight, I did cheat a little and cooked them in the mix in a fry pan, and was very pleased indeed with the result. DH who was going to an engagement that I wasn't attending looked jealously at my plate LOL. The saffrom did make the sauce rather yellow and gave it quite a pleasing but distinctive taste so if you like saffron then this recipe is for you. Please see my rating system: a excellent 4 stars. Thanks!

    Loved this. Very easy to make and everything worked well together. The saffron added great flavour and colour.

    Really quick, really tasty and the saffron / shrimp combination works together ever so well. I thought the lime juice might have overpowered things a bit but was wrong, and everything is just perfect.
