Made as written except used yellow onion instead of scallions, and only 1 lb. of shrimp for the 2 of us. Enjoyed this over orzo/rice pilaf also on this site. Quick and tasty! The next time I may put in some of the lime zest to enhance that flavor more. Read More

Good stuff, watch the cayenne. Recipe is a touch spicy, adjust up or down depending on your taste. Read More
