Agree with Doug that it lacks flavor. Maybe add a splash or two of white wine to the lemon juice at the end.

I made this recipe and can't even believe how easy and flavorful it was. It is definitely going into my meal cycle. I added a lil extra garlic & onion seasoning :) I also used frozed pre-cooked shrimp which cut down on cook time.

This was a terrific recipe. Very easy, just what I was hoping for in taste. Even my 6 year old picky eater loves it! I made it once for our family to test it, and then for family and company the next week, served with a salad and french bread. Everyone raved about it. PS I used a little more shrimp than called for.
