Loooooved this! Found myself with fresh limes and shrimp and of course garlic (an Italian thing) so decided to tackle it. Have got to say that if you have delicate taste buds you may not like it, but I love robust flavors so it fits my tastes. Followed the recipe close but when it came to arranging it on Spanish rice- no urge there so used it as a topping for baked potatoes and to keep the tomato in it tossed in a small handful of grape tomatoes that I split and sautéed in pepper oil. This is a dish you have to make your own, but when you do, it will be something to come back to again and again.


Loved the shrimp, but I did change it a bit. I added garlic olive oil to the marinade and a little lime fajita seasoning. YUM. I also added some cilantro to the sour cream and made Mexican Rice II from this site. My 5 year old asked for seconds.
