    This recipe was excellent, very tasty. I had bought small shrimp so i cooked it for 10 minutes instead of 12. I squeezed some lemon on it after it was cooked for that extra zing! So good! Can't wait to eat my leftovers for lunch! lol

    There seem to not be any stars to rate this recipe. As with all TOH recipes, I've always been completely satisfied with the outcome, so I'd rate this *5*, even though I've not made it yet.
