Reviews for Grilled Shrimp with Cilantro Dipping Sauce
"I made this for a get together with neighbors and it was a real hit! I'm using extra dipping sauce on fish tacos this week."
"This is really tasty. My whole family loved it. I added some lime juice to the marinade. Served over a bed of orzo."
"The sauce really made this recipe. Fabulous! Marinade was ok but probably any marinade/seasoning would work for the shrimp. Definitely an abundance of sauce. Next time will half sauce or double the shrimp."
"This is fabulous. Loved it!"
"I made this dish for Easter brunch. My family loved it. No changes."
"Tasted OK, but too much work for too little flavor."
"this has become a family favorite. I have used the marinade on scallops and chicken as well as the shrimp."
"The sauce was a little too spicy, but over all it was delicious."
"Best shrimp recipe yet, and I've made it a lot of different ways. Of course the cilantro dipping sauce was the cherry on top!"
"This is awesome"
"This was so delicious and easy. This recipe is a keeper and I usually don't make the same thing twice!"
"I've made this recipe twice and it has been fabulous both times. It's quick, easy, and oh so tasty! My entire family enjoys this one! The cilantro dipping sauce is ever so yummy and it tastes great over eggs the next morning for breakfast and also makes a great salad dressing. This recipe is a keeper!"
"Loved it! Will make it or just the dipping sauce again soon! Can't wait to share with others at a party and have everybody ooh and aah!"
"I made this recipe earlier this week. I didn't have any shrimp so I used chicken breast cut into bite size bits. Simply delicious. I just love the dip. Great with vegies (try it with roasted vegies)."
"Excellent.... Good for green chicken enchilada casserol add a dap of sour cream"
"It was a HUGE hit. Absolutely loved it and will make it again....soon!"
"I made this for a family get together and it was a huge hit! There was a ton of sauce left over so we scrounged around and found some tortilla chips to finish it off. I've made just the sauce and used it for a great low carb veggie dip and also used it on shrimp and chicken soft tacos with some rice and black beans. The cilantro dipping sauce is definitely the star of this recipe!"
"This was fabulous! There's just enough "kick" in the dipping sauce. The sauce is great with raw vegies, too. We used larger shrimp (Jumbo: 16-20 per pound and 4-5 per serving)"
