    This sounds delish!
    And, as I keep *fresh squeezed lime juice (and lemon juice) in the freezer as a staple, I can try this tonight! Everyone sounds like they've really enjoyed this.
    *Note: I buy lemons and limes in bulk and squeeze them into ice cube trays to freeze for ease of use.Very Handy. - 7/15/09

    Yum! After reading the other comments, I added ginger and used the juice of 2 limes and let it marinate for a couple hours (if you left it overnight, the shrimp would be nearly cooked by the acid!).
    I also used about half an onion. Next time I'll drain off the juice before sauteing, so it will sear - 1/26/09

    This is great! I was in the mood for Mexican, so I added minced garlic and cumin. Since this is low in calories, I put a few shrimp in a fajita-sized flour tortilla with lettuce, tomato, and light sour cream. 2 shrimp tacos + 1 c of spanish rice = about 450 calories and is very filling and tasty! - 2/22/08

    This was very simple and so tasty! Only difference was I cooked in EVOO instead of spray for some added healthy fats and served over leafy greens and fresh veggies. I liked Godfreysill's suggestion of skewering and grilling; will definitely do that next time! Great recipe. - 4/28/08

    84 calories for a serving of 14 large shrimp doesn't make sense to me. The package of shrimp I have says there's 90 cals in a 3 oz serving, and 14 large shrimp must be more than 30 oz. - 9/12/09

    This was a little too bland for my liking. I think MAZ3563 had the right idea adding ginger to give it a bit of a Thai feel. Maybe add a pinch of cayenne and marinate?

    Plus, since you're using large shrimp why not string them on skewers and toss them on the grill?
