"This dish just screams summer! The shrimp cooking time listed is 3 minutes but keep an eye on them so that they don't overcook. The key is to remove them from the heat right when the flesh is uniformly pink. You might need a minute or two longer depending on your shrimp."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I scaled back for one serve and appreciated the very ease of preparing and making the recipe but found the spice mix on the prawns/shrimp was rather over powering. I used an all round seasoning (we don't get Mrs. Dash here but research showed the ingredients were very similar) so will make again but maybe with just some salt and pepper for seasoning. Thank you EOdisciple made for What's On The Menu tag game at FF&F.
