I forgot the cilantro so mine was just the dressing and shrimp over white rice. It was still tasty and I couldn't ask for a faster meal!

Not only was this a quick and easy recipe, it was delicious. My husband and I really enjoyed it and will have it again soon. We used Ken's Steak House Lite Asian Sesame with Ginger and Soy Dressing. We added blanched snow peas to the shrimp and dressing mixture. It was spicy and very flavorful. A bonus is each serving has only 3 Weight Watcher Smart Points. Thanks for posting this recipe Tami!

I made this as directed. I don't think the dressing really gave much flavor and was quickly overpowered once I drizzled with the fresh lime. It was simple, but not flavorful enough for me.
