Shrimp sauteed in cilantro, garlic, lime, salsa, and white wine. So simple, yet so delicious! A twist on the usual garlicky sauteed shrimp. The best shrimp recipe I have ever eaten. Served with tortillas or over rice.

Did all of the prep work early in the day so all that needed to be done this evening was to sauté the onions and garlic add the salsa mixture heat and then add the shrimp my kind d of meal. Used a red jalapeno instead of a red chile pepper (what I had on hand) which gave a lick kick of heat and added more lime juice. Delicious easy full of fresh flavor and tender shrimp thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely will be made again. Read More

I think I must have done something wrong because most of the reviews are positive for this dish. But for me, it was extremely acidic. I tried to fix it by adding a little butter and sugar, but my family did not like this dish at all. :( Read More

This a quick meal that had a great big taste. We served it over white rice with black beans in it and roasted asparagus. There was none left at the end of dinner. Read More

Great!!! Entire family loved it! Easy to make my great 12 year old son make the masterpiece. My 9 year old daughter went back after she was done (she is a picky eater to). We agreed that maybe adding a little more spice to it might make it better. We substituted the red chili puree for a dried red pepper that i dehydrated in my sweet dehydrator. Overall 9/10 Read More

This was so good. I made this in a pinch when I had some shrimp but wasn't sure what to make with it. Very flavorful. Only wish I would have snapped a photo. No leftovers so I'll have to take one next time! Read More

This is great recipe. Not much I would change on it. I followed all the ingredients I left out some of the lemon and lime juice (to taste I like a little less of that what it said in the recipe) I used vegetable stock in place of the white wine because the wine white tasted so much better drinking it as opposed cooking it out in this recipe. I served it with rice and it was so flavorful and delicious I will make it again. Read More

fantastic! easy fast yummy. I used a little more shrimp there was still enough sauce. had with rice...green beans and a green salad. I did leave out the pepper and used medium Tostito's salsa...because I had older people and kids eating....and it was delicious. Some of us added red pepper flakes for heat. It's a keeper!! Read More
