Reviews for Shrimp Fajitas
"Very tasty and simple to make. Will make this again. Shrimp is extremely flavorful"
"These were yummy and quick. I used Cajun spice also. Did not use cilantro, otherwise followed the recipe. I will make again."
"These were good, but in order to keep the calories even lower, I substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream. You could also a half yogurt, half sour cream mixture. To desmma15, cilantro is a basic flavor in Mexican cooking. If you are happy without it that is great. Enjoy!"
"This is a great recipe, but why do so many recipes today call for cilantro? I hate the stuff; tastes like soap. The recipe was terrific without it."
"These were fast & wonderful!"
