This recipe turned out delicious! Although my husband didn't like it as well, said the peppers were overpowering. I loved it, and liked it even better the next day in a pita. Will definately make again, and again and again....

Loved it! My only comment was that the olive oil was rather unnecessary and added a whole lot of calories. I only used a tablespoon or so and it was still the right texture and tasted excellent. The avocado was hard to notice, if you like avocado I would add a little more. Otherwise I'd substitute the avocado for another vegetable and a little more oil. I added chili pepper flakes but added more than I thought! Just be careful if/when you add chili pepper, it definitely makes it but its easy to go overboard. I also forgot the cilantro and I didn't notice it. As a side note, if you've got the time and patience, I'd cut the shrimp into smaller pieces. It makes it easier to eat and allows the aromatics to blend into the meat more quickly.
