actually, we made this for a barbeque and it came out very good.my husband cooked it for my whole family, he works for a resturant.everyone was impressed.the way your ingredients is that's actually the way he did it..keep it up..
This was a very good recipe but needed some tweaking. I used 2 limes instead of 3. I added a half-cup of orange juice, a half-cup of honey and a small can of crushed pineapple to the marinade. I marinated for 2 hours. After pan-frying the shrimp, I poured the excess marinade in the pan and reduced by half to make a sauce. I Toasted some coconut and added that to some white rice I made and poured the sauce over the rice and sprinkled the shrimp with some leftover toasted coconut. Delicious!
I made this recipe exactly as instructed. My family of four decided that the lime flavors are too strong and even bitter. Next time I make this, I will cut way back on the lime zest, and add more orange juice. Hubby said he would have liked more sauce that he could put over the rice I served alongside. Maybe I'll add some crushed pineapple, honey and a sprinkle of toasted coconut before serving to create a sweeter version. This recipe definetly needs some experimenting before you serve it to guests. Nice light recipe, however; and easy to throw together.
I liked this allot. I reduced the marinade on the stove top and used it as a sauce.
Fab recipe! I went with the advice of another reviewer and lessened the garlic. Now that I've eaten it, I'm not convinced that was necessary. Definitely should let the shrimp sit longer in the marinade than 20 minutes. I let it go for about an hour and it easily could have gone longer.
This wasnt horrable, but it needs some tweaking. I might try adding the honey and what not as suggested by one of the other reveiwers. I let the shrimp marinade about 1 1/2 hrs longer than directed. Maybe that had something to do with the over pouring citrus flavor. When they called it citrus shrimp they werent joking!
Way t much lime and I cut the limes down by half only ate one portion.
This was very good. The citrus made it so refreshing tasting. I will make again. Next time I will try it on the grill. Thanks.
