    I only used half a tablespoon on chili powder and paprika and it was still very flavorful but not so spicy. Definitely recommend and will make it again soon!

    Very good. I would use half the chili powder and use large shrimp. We served this over coconut rice. Yum!

    This was delicious. Put it on a Greek/Israeli salad with avocado and it was sublime.

    Pretty flavorful but the chili powder is overwhelming. Next time I would add less chili and more brown sugar to get it real crispy. I served it on a Caesar salad

    So yummy! I didn't measure precisely and think I added a bit more brown sugar that I was supposed to but the sweetness was really nice. Definitely going to make this again.

    it turned out great! i dont eat seafood but my family does and it was a hit! they asked for more and I'm terrible at cooking! i changed the cumin to cayenne pepper because I didnt have cumin. idk if that makes a difference but the family sure loved it!
