Reviews for Spicy Island Shrimp
"very spicy that kids could not eat it as well has my husband."
"Delicious...No need to change anything. I was worried about the cayenne pepper and reduced it to half of what the recipe called for. I won't change anything in the recipe next time i make it. My family like this one a lot."
"This recipe was amazing! I also made it with chicken and shrimp by cooking the inplace of the shrimp. Then added the shrimp when the chicken was done. Everyone loved it and I was very happy with the out come! I used 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper and it was not too spicy."
"This has to be one our absolute favorite recipes EVER in our house. I take out a portion for my kids before I add the white and cayenne pepper (too spicy for them yet and 6 & 5) add a litte ketchup to their version and they eat it right up! Of course my husband and I LOVE the full spicy version. SO GOOD!"
"Great recipe. I just recently realized that I love shrimp recipes. I don't like green pepper though & used red instead. I cut the recipe in 1/2 & it was at least 4 servings. Definitely a keeper"
"This is one of my favorites, Love the spicy shrimp. I have made this several times, i like to change it just a little each time."
"I would use a diffrent sauce base next time."
"One of my favorite shrimp recipes yet. So easy to make and has an awesome flavor. Will cut back on the peppers for my daughter, as I think it is too spicy for her."
"Sorry folks my reviews were for the shrimp Newburg, I haven't tried the spicy Island shrimp yet. It was the next recipe I was going to try. Sorry !"
"In my previous review I forgot to add that I did use the cream of mushroom soup and added 1 tsp. of Old Bay and also some H.E.B. Texas Originals blackened seasoning spice blend sprinkled on to add extra flavor. It did not taste spicy but flavorful."
"I tried this recipe tonight for a light dinner. i was pleasantly surprised at how easy and really good this tasted ! My husband and daughter both said it was a dish they would request again ! I cook all my meals at home with an occasional meal out, so I am always happy to find a new addition to our menu. I am from a coastal town so seafood is always plentiful and new recipes are greatly appreciated ! Thank you for sharing your recipe."
"My family loved this recipe. Just a little too spicy for my kids. Next time I will reduce the cayanne."
"We love this recipe. It is easy to make and tastes great. I didn't change a thing. Even my daughter, who doesn't care for seafood loves this one. It's definitely a keeper."
"My husband and I love this dish. I reduce the cayenne, garlic powder, salt and pepper slightly so that one can appreciate the taste of the sauce."
"Re: Spicy Island Shrimp love itjust enough spice"
