"Any recipe with shrimp will grab my attention... so of course, I had to make this one. No grill, so I did it under the broiler, prepared exactly as written, and we loved it. Did not make the dipping sauce; served it with rice on the side. As a volunteer field editor, I am delighted to recommend this recipe."

"I substituted small sweet peppers for the tomatoes, and omitted the dipping sauce for lack of time, but at least I made the shrimp part as written. The marinade was simple and lemony, and my kids loved it."
