    I like this recipe a lot! Put on top of 2 oz of whole wheat pasta with a side of veggies and you have a great meal. - 3/27/10

    Fantastic! We had this in WW tortillas with mixed greens, diced avocado, and goat cheese crumbles. I used half the amount of salt, half the cayenne (for hubby), and added 1/8 tsp each cumin and chili powder. WIsh I had leftovers! - 1/13/09

    I made this with 1lb. mahi mahi instead of shrimp and made it into fish tacos by putting them in flour tortillas and serving them with lettuce, tomato, and lite sour cream. They were so flavorful!! Everyone loved them at my dinner party! Oh, I also replaced cayenne w/ red pepper flakes. YUM!! - 5/2/10

    This was completely amazing! Easy and fast. I would make one note that you MUST have all ingredients ready to be put in the pan when you start. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I served it with a side of brown rice and sweet peas. - 4/13/10

    Oh yum! I made this for shrimp tacos (on white corn torts with spinach) and it was fabulous. I made some extra shrimp too just for recipe inclusions - great on salad, mixed with pasta, or in an omelette or scramble. - 5/17/10
