Garlic Lime Shrimp Recipe

Our son, a restaurant owner, showed me how to make this quick shrimp and noodle dish zipped up with garlic and cayenne. I take advantage of this area's ample shrimp supply and make this special entree often. It's also tasty served over rice.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 2, 2013

This is a great simple dinner to make and tastes delicious. I will probably cut down on the butter a bit next time, but very yummy!

I have made this multiple times. My boyfriend loves it! I usually cut back a little on the butter and substitute olive oil. It has a good spice without being overbearing.

My husband & I thought this is a great recipe. He completely forgot it was actually Diabetic Friendly.

We served it alongside asparagus and the two were very complimentary. My husband and nine-year-old loved it.

very good! a simple and quick meal. would probably only use 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper next time i make it - 1/2 tsp was a bit too much for my preference.
