    I followed this recipe exactly and it was AWESOME…MMMMMMMMMM!!! The whole family loved it.

  • Julie

    Was a little too lemony for the rest of my family but I loved it. May try to “spice it up” a little next time.

  • sandy

    excellent recipe but a little spicy. Next time I would leave out the pepper!!

  • Jacqueline

    Love it! My brother is chowing it down as we speak. However I couldn’t find the red pepper so I left it out…and of course I had more shrimp than that! However it is really good.

  • Liz

    Love this recipe! I found it a little too lemony at first, as well, but the next day it was just perfect!

  • Julie

    I really loved the recipe but am wondering where the 9 grams of fat comes from. I only counted about 20 for the entire recipe and for four servings, that’s way less than 9.

    Not bad–based on the other comments, I diluted the lemon juice (1/3 cup then filled to 1/2 c line with water). The lemony flavor was pleasant. I did had some issues with the green onion. By the time the shrimp is pink, the onion is wilted and turning an unappetizing brownish color.

    I’d advise waiting to add the green onion and tossing it in toward the end with the flour. This will keep the color and texture better.

    I followed the recipe exactly (i did forget the onions), the family loved it! I am a very picky eater and thought it was great. I will make this again. I loved the spicy flavor, i might add a little more garlic next time, just because i LOVE GARLIC.

    Delicious! Anything with lemon and garlic is a keeper in my book.
    I added extra garlic and and disolved the flour in about 1/8 cup of cold chicken stock before adding to the pan so it didn’t clump up. Not so big on green onions so I added much less than the recipe calls for and just sprinkled them over the top once it was all cooked.
    I agree with Julie on the fat content, also. I’m counting about 23 grams in the total recipe, but the fat in the olive oil and shrimp are healthy fats so I wouldn’t worry much about it.
