This is an easy dependable shrimp recipe. The flavors are somewhat mild but that's not a bad thing especially when children are involved! This was very kid friendly. The sauce on the side was nice. It came together as described. I only had medium shrimp so I went with that and it was just fine. I think this would be divine if incorporated into a salad somehow... maybe next time!
