    Why does everyone get so upset over the pictures, this is a recipe you could add a lot of different things to depending on your likes and your tastes. Looks great and sounds great to me. - 9/9/13

    You can add any veggies you like to this recipe and have a one-dish meal that tastes wonderful. I like recipes like, this one, that give me a foundation that I can build on. I would add some orange or yellow bell peppers , halved grape tomatoes, and some asparagus tips to the recipe. - 9/9/13

    The recipe looks good, but what is all the green stuff in the picture? Green onions? Green peppers? They have celery pictured on the cutting board, but the green is too green to be celery. - 9/9/13

    I think I would throw in some spinach at the last minute and let it wilt a bit. Paired with a slice of crunchy mculti grain bread would be wonderful. Thinking about it as and easy meal when I host a reunion of my sorority sisters this fall. - 9/9/13

    I think this will be tasty with thinly sliced boneless chicken breasts, too. No one else in my house will eat seafood. Definitely something worth trying. I love having recipes to start with that I can modify as needed to meet dietary preferences and/or restrictions. - 9/9/13

    Just wondering how you get 4-3oz servings (12 ounces) when you start with 16 ounces shrimp and add more ingredients?

    PS- the pic has small red and light green peppers, sliced garlic, and cilantro. top this with line zest and squeeze lime. - 9/9/13

    Didn't have a spicy pepper, but added sweet pepper, cherry tomatoes, and sliced green onions. Still kind of bland, but mixed well with the side of wild rice. Could have added some red pepper flakes, but didn't think about it in time. Next time I'll make sure to buy the right pepper for the punch. - 1/26/14

    FYI - Food photographers deliberately do things 2 a recipe so it has more "mouth appeal". 2 add something 2 a pic of a recipe that could add to that, they will add things. 2 this recipe, adding celery is a logical progression. For that special glow, they spritz it w/ a glycerine spray. - 9/14/13

    pe-detail.asp?recipe=453075 .They don't list celery as an ingredient clearly it also has either fresh Parsley or cilantro, but only dried parsley is listed.

  • I loved this recipe and it is so low in calories and has great protein! I did add some bell pepper and instead of fresh hot pepper added crushed red pepper flakes as that is what I had on hand. I made this two nights in a row, which is unusual for me, but it is that good. - 10/10/14

  • No, the photo does not portray the recipe. In any case, it was good, and I will make it again. I doubled the olive oil and the butter because I wanted more sauce to put over the angel hair pasta. - 9/9/13

  • when you add some rice or noodles to the recipe it will probably be quite good!Also I would change the hot pepper to a light teas.of sriracha or other med.hot sauce. - 9/9/13

  • I haven't tried this yet but it looks like it could be tasty. I will say thought it is not a complete meal and since there isn't any sauce I don't think it would be good over rice or Asian noodles. Does anyone have any suggestions ? - 9/9/13
