Reviews for Scampi Adobo
"This recipe is delicious. I tasted the poblano pepper while I was chopping it and thought my face was on fire...but when it's cooked it cools down and is really good. I served it over angel hair pasta. It is spicy but not overly so."
"I was afraid this was going to have a strong lime taste, but it turned out perfect. I for sure will make this over and over!"
"Delicious! A favorite of mine and my husbands. I make it all the time."
