    Very tasty, but the spice does overwhelm the shrimp, so use the supermarket shrimp, not the good right off the boat ones. And it needs something to balance the spice. So awesome with creamy pasta, would be good as part of tacos with cabbage and lime sour cream. Not so great as a dish on its own for your no carb husband.

    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. I might actually try this with scallops bc I prefer them over shrimp.

    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.
