    This was totally delicious and surprisingly not too hot-spicy without burning--and the extra lime juice squeezed over the cooked shrimp adds a great flavor

    Love, love, love this recipe!! I cooked the shrimp over very high heat at the end giving the jalapeno and garlic a real nice crisp. Even my nine year old, who is a VERY picky eater, couldn't get enough of the shrimp! No one could believe that there wasn't any butter in this recipe... so DELISH!!!
