    The shrimp has a great flavor. It is a twist on traditional steamed shrimp. The clean-up was quick and easy. Would try this again. Definitely serve with bread for sopping the liquid...it's great.

    So easy and delicious. The shrimp was seasoned perfectly and came out just right. Going into the rotation!

    Excellent dish. Easy go-to recipe that is delicious and inexpensive as most ingredients are on hand. This is a dish worthy of company, especially a Friday night no-fuss meal. A baguette is must to soak up the yummy sauce. A salad rounds out meal perfectly. A definite keeper!

    This is a tasty dish and easy to prepare. My only complaint is that the cooking time plus rest time was overly long. The shrimp were on the tough side. I will try it again, but bake for 10 to 15 minutes and perhaps forget the rest time. Also, I won't use the extra butter called for in the last step. After all, this is a Cooking Light recipe. As long as the oven was hot, I served roasted red potato quarters and a salad along side.

    It wasn't awful, but lacked flavor. It was a pretty blah dish ovreall.

    Really good combination of flavors in the recipe. I omitted the additional butter in the packet. Cooking time of 20 min for 25-35 ct shrimp was waaayyy too long. Will try again with 10 min in the oven 10 min rest next time. Just served mine plain with some bread to soak up the sauce, but will try it over rice next time.

    Absolutely Scrumptious!! I had everything on hand and decided to make it for a quick Thursday night dinner. The flavor was too die for and so very quick and easy to prepare. I used medium sized shrimp and should have trust my judgment about the cooking time; next time will cut in half. Definitely needs something to soak up the yummy sauce...bread, rice...anything not to let it go to waste :)

    We made this recipe along with the CL dirty rice recipe for Fat Tuesday. We loved it! It brought us right back to New Orleans. Very easy with very little clean up. Only note would be to decrease the cooking time. The shrimp were a little tough.

    I love this easy to make recipe. I used half the lemon, twice the tobasco sauce, and peeled shrimp. I found the flavor to be really good. My husband loved it as well.

    Awesome recipe. I doubled the marinade and served the packets over rice. It was an awesome meal. Wish I had bought a loaf of bread to dunk in the sauce. Great dinner!

    An all time fave of my family. I also omit the extra butter in each packet. And don't worry if you don't have time to marinate the shrimp - it's still good without.

    I made this recipe on a camping trip. It was easy to make and clean up. Throw in a green salad and some crusty bread and you have a "nice" dinner. As some of the previous reviewers said, the tastes are not overwhelming but this is a good, solid recipe.

    Light and easy. Great taste and flavor. Definitely shorten up on the cooking time in the oven. Check after 10 minutes.

    Made this for our Christmas Eve fish dinner, easy and delicious!

    I've made this twice now and both times a big hit, though very large shrimp is key. I peel them before putting them in the foil, otherwise it's just way too messy. Served with crusty bread and salad.
