  1. I made this recipe last night for dinner. We loved it! I served it over cauliflower “rice”. The sauce was amazing, so I will definitely be doubling this portion of the recipe next time. This recipe is a keeper!

  2. I made this shrimp tonight and my very particular 13 year old son said unsolicited, “Mom this shrimp is good!” He finished his dinner in record time too. That simple comment says so much as it is very rare to get a positive comment about dinner from him. I will definitely put this in my recipe arsenal to make again and again.

  3. I made this last night with chicken instead of shrimp.. and added a wee bit of coconut milk and chili pepper flakes. A party in my mouth! Soooo tasty!
