  1. Prepared the recipe as directed. Not enough flavor. Very bland.
  2. I made these tonight for an early Christmas dinner. They were delicious and so easy to make. The marinade had just the right amount of flavor without overpowering the shrimp. I served the shrimp over a cilantro lime rice and even my picky grandchildren loved them.
  3. These are wonderful! After the refridgeration/marinade step, I poured the marinade (there wasn't a lot of it) into a hot fry pan and let it reduce just a fraction before throwing in the schrimp for a super quick cook and the result was excellent. DH wished that I'd made more.. and this will definiately be on our menu again in the future. Please see my Rating System: 4 excellent stars for a recipe that can be prepped in the morning and cooked in a flash after work. Great flavours and looks good too. Thanks!
  4. Made this for dinner tonight and it was good. My DH does not like seafood so I try to find easier to make dishes where I can reduce the portions. Add to some leftover pasta, sauteed mushrooms and frozen broccoli. Was quick and easy and will make again.
  5. Very tasty meal and so quick & easy....I forgot to allow for the marinating so it was only sitting for about 20 min was still very good, next time i'm going to try it with a fried rice recipe fromt he zaar =)
