Eh. This was "OK." Nothing special, IMHO. If I were awarding stars for ease of preparation, I'd definitely give this a 5. I am rating based on flavor, so I can only give 3. During the work week, I'm always on the lookout for quick-fix recipes. This was exactly what I was looking for. I pretty much followed Kim's directions to a T, except for two things - I decreased the cajun seasoning (Emeril's Essence) by 1 T and I marinated for 12 hours (put everything in a large Zip-lock bag before I left my house at 7 AM). When I got to work, I panicked thinking that I ruined dinner becasue either a) my shrimp would be too spicy due to sitting in the marinade all day or b) the lime juice would "cook" my shrimp (I've heard that you should only marinate seafood / acidic ingredients for 30 minutes MAX, but at the last minute, decided to try out this theory myself lol). Neither happened (thank God!). My fiance warmed the coals on our Weber just before I got home, so all I had to do was thread skewers, prepare our rice side dish (Zataran's garlic & herb), crack open a bag of tortilla chips and store-bought guacamole and mix up some frozen margaritas (yummm...)! Thanks for sharing this no-fuss meal idea, Kimmy. I'm not sure this will make a repeat at my house, but I'm glad to have given it a try nonetheless. At least we had a decent meal to fill our tummies! :)
