This is a favorite in our house. I’ve made it with shrimp just like the recipe calls for and I’ve made it with 1 lb shrimp and 1lb halibut. Both ways are really good.

Very good - loved the flavors in the sauce, but almost overpowered the shrimp. But, I will make this again! Would like to try this with chicken.

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
