Reviews for New Orleans-Style Spicy Shrimp
"We thought this was decent, but found it to be a bit lacking on flavor. I expected the flavor to be stronger but it's extremely subtle. The only thing I can think of is maybe the shrimp were too wet and that diluted the flavor. It did have a good flavor, just needed to be stronger. The only thing I did different was cut it into 1/4. We wound up dipping the shrimp in Old Bay after it was cooked. While this is decent, there are other shrimp recipes I like better."
"We love this recipe as is. I only adjust amounts to however many people are eating."
"We loved this recipe, but I did modify so it would not be too spicy. I eliminated the chili garlic sauce, added only 1 tablespoon of hot sauce, and since I did not have any lemons, I added the equivalent amount of lemon juice. I was delicious and we will definitely make again with the adjustments."
"This was amazing!! Perhaps a bit too much food for 2 people so I will cut everything in half next time."
"This shrimp recipe is delicious. The lemon slices add a nice layer of flavor. Served over rice.I will definitely make again."
