    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

    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.
