  • I made more shrimp, so I increased the amounts. Instead of orange juice I used half as much lemon juice, squeezed one lime on the shrimp, used 3/4 of the amount of cilantro, and instead of the chili powder used 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper. They were great! - 1/15/12

  • Had this for summer - quick and easy, but I forgot to peel the shrimp before marinating them. I bet they would be even better had I not missed this step! Thanks for sharing. - 7/27/10
