Made this for my dautghter and son-in-law and we all loved it. Went nicely with rice, may try adding some pineapple next time.
This recipe is good, but it's missing something and is a bit too sweet. May try adding something to help give a little more depth of flavor and cut the sweet next time.
Used cooked shrimp cause I couldn't find medium frozen, uncooked. Turned out great. Very tasty and the kiddo loved it!
This time used uncooked shrimp...even better!
5 stars because this was soooo easy, fast and delicious! TRUE fast food, but so much better for you!
This was amazing!! I only had a 12 oz bag of shrimp, so mine was saucy & I like it that way, probably 3 servings. Definitely garnish with cilantro. A real keeper!!!
