    This was very YUMMY! My husband and kids loved it. It might be really tasty with chicken instead of shrimp if you dont like shrimp. - 1/17/09

  • This recipe is good and healthy. My family liked it, but it was a little plain on flavor. It could use some spice or zest some how for my taste. But definitely healthy and easy to make. - 8/12/09
