Very good. Very flavorful. Would be great for company. We like our food on the spicy side and would add more cayene pepper next time.
I used jalapenos (seeded) instead of green bell peppers because that was what I had on hand. I also bumped up the cayenne to 1/4 tsp. Spicy but not enough to lose the taste of the shrimp. love it!
When the whole family loves it, you know you have a winner.
Could you use chicken instead of shrimp?
I added some snow peas as well as some Old Bay to this recipe and it was a winner! The family approved it for a future meal.
