    Added Siracha and Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ sauce and replaced lime wedges with lime juice to taste. Delicious would totally eat again! Ate with salad and white rice.

    Added blackened seasoning and also a dash of lime juice when stirring in the garlic at the end. Top w sriracha to taste. Served with cajun rice and steamed broccolini.

    This actually surprised me, in a good way. As i put the seasonings together i got a little concerned due to the strong flavor some of spices have. However it worked perfectly. I'd make it again.

    Fabulous! Served it over sautéed polenta and garnished with chopped cilantro.. No other sides were needed. This is quite filling, oh, with a glass of chilled New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

    This was so fast and easy. I have a magic dust that utilizes all the marinade ingredients so I tossed my shrimp with my seasoning and some oil. After I blackened the shrimp I added blue cheese crumbles on top. Seriously the simplest but best tasting recipe I’ve used for shrimp. We could’ve licked the plate clean! This is a five star rating but the computer wouldn’t hilite the 5th star!

    Absolutely fabulous! Almost shameful how easy & flavorful shrimp turns out. After cooking in a cast iron skillet, I threw in some tilapia & cooked it in the same spices then served w brown rice & green beans. Family said it’s in the lineup😁

    Great flavor but the spice level needed to be kicked up for my taste so I added hot sauce when finished cooking.

    This recipe is simple, and pretty faultless. I just ate shrimp last night and didnt even bother with sides.

    Made with honey instead of brown sugar. Mixed with rice wasn't too spicy, but like others said i may do a little less chili powder sometimes. Super easy to make and delicious.

    I listened to the reviews and halved the paprika and Chile powder, and then added honey towards the end of the cooking time. This was so yummy, I ate every last bit! Had it with rice but will be making this again for tacos 😋

    Amazing... easy to make and turns out yum. I mixed the spices a little bit, and would probably do a honey glaze next time instead of sugar. But all in all, a super easy and delicious recipe.

    I like spicy food but next time I'd use a little less chilli because the other flavours got a little lost. otherwise, very very tasty!

    THANK YOU! I made some home made chili powder and added cayenne pepper! They were FIRE! I’ll be making these again!
