I can't eat shrimp so I used scallops.

This recipe is good for those nights when you don't have a lot of time or don't really feel like cooking! It turned out quite good. I only had a pound of frozen baby shrimp on hand, so I wound up halving the recipe and using it as a filling for shrimp fajitas. I also kicked it up a little with about a half teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

I expected this to be good, but it was great. The ingredient list is short. The cooking technique is simple. I doubled the lime and cilantro. Eveyone wanted seconds!

I made half a recipe and followed it to a T. We use a similar recipe on this site that uses more lime (and a marinade time before grilling) that we enjoy more. We may have again on days when grilling isn't an option and allow the shrimp to marinate for about 15 minutes before cooking.

I originally decided to make this because it looked easy and I had plenty of shrimp in the freezer and really had no expectations for the dish. I was very pleasantly surprised. The cilantro and lime was a nice fresh taste. My shrimp were large and my cooking time was slightly longer. Will definitely make this again.

This is a tasty shrimp dish. My mistake was not using more lime juice, because I liked the acidity it added to the shrimp.
