  1. I asked the person who said they marinated the shrimp for 20 minutes before cooking the shrimp for the "shrimp taco recipe" what marinade they used to marinate the shrimp? where do I go to see their response? Or, who can give me this information?


  1. Per another reviewer's suggestion, I did marinate the shrimp for a bit before cooking. For being so easy to make, I was impressed with how good these were. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Very good the shrimp was seasoned just right! Best i have had for awhile thank you for the wonderful recipe.
  5. These shrimp were really good. We doubled the shrimp and sort of doubled the sauce (not adding 4 tbsp. of taco seasoning). These had good taste, were fast to prepare on a weeknight, and were enjoyed by all.
