    I only used half the oil and didn't use the salt at all, but I doubled the chilis!! Awesome! This will be on my regular rotation, for sure! - 4/13/09

    Looks good, but the olive oil isn't calculated into the total. I started to do a recipe makeover and reduce the olive oil, but found there isn't any olive oil at all in the list of ingredients. If you make this as written, it's 331 calories, not 241. - 7/9/12

    Yes, I found this recipe on Epicurious.com also. It is very saucy so make sure you have plenty of bread to sop up the juices. Actually, I served it with Ronald Regan's Rancho Rice & a small green salad! You know a good recipe when you see one! - 12/31/08

    Decent but reminded me of a Shrimp Diablo than something Greek. Red Pepper was the dominant flavor, I thought it was way too much sauce and I thought the oven was an unnecessary second step. Shrimp cooks so fast, why not toss it into the simmering sauce and cut your time in half? - 3/6/11

    Made this last night for dinner, my 17 yr old son RAVED about it, we were a little cautious of the cinnamon with shrimp but this dish was absolutely divine, its going to be a new regular at our dinner table for certain. We served it with a greek salad, some hummus and cilantro rice. Yummy!! - 3/25/10
