    It was inedible. It was so bad, I couldn't even eat it. I'm sure that we could put part of he blame on the chef. But me and my family didn't like the chili powder on the shrimp. I love shrimp and this dish will sadly be tossed into the depths with the living shrimp

    Really liked this, and so did my daughters, 17 and 21. Forgot the peas, but that was ok since didn't care for them. I jacked my serving up with Cholula sauce, but the girls were good with it as cooked. Will add into the rotation!

    Overpowering lime juice somehow accomplished the most bland meal. Definitely should've taken the advice of the previous raters.

    I didn't use peas. And I used half quinoa half rice. And I used real butter. The whole family loved it.
