"Pasta tonight - Salad the next time! The only change I made was in making a compromise. I just couldn't justify buying six lemons, for zest, when I only needed the juice of one. So, I used the zest..." See more and juice of the most enormous lemon I could find. That worked for me! Also, I used freshly ground "Medley Peppercorns" and 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic for a litte extra pizzaz."
"Absolutely delicious!!!! Zesting six lemons is a lot of work BUT you can do it in advance as lemon zest freezes very well. Lemon juice also freezes well so I just squeezed the rest of the lemons and..." See more froze the juice. Also, I added four chopped roma tomatoes as my husband loves them. I think they added color and a bit more flavor without overwhelming the dish. If you love cilantro and shrimp, fix this!"
