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 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 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!

Very delicious and will make again! Served nicely over a bed of lettuce, with extra virgin oil, cilantro, and lemon zest. Very colorful and as I said, delicious! Can't wait to try this with pasta!!
