  1. This was delicious! I prepped everything in the morning, so all I had to do was put it on the sheet pan and put it in the oven. I used the same spices, just a little more of each. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Should we add time if the shrimp are frozen??

  3. I have been on a shrimp kick lately. This recipe looks delicious and quick! This works for me. I like using my broiler. It really gives the food that extra something. Lots of oohs and ahhs when it comes out of the broiler.

  4. Stephanie says:

  8. Justina Merz says:

    making tonight! skipping the tortillas and using lettuce cups and a little salsa on top

  9. This looks awesome!! Have you tried with chicken or steak? I wonder if changing up the meat would change the cook time?

  10. Made exactly as recipe stated. ( minus measuring exact amount of spices and oil) this is so easy and delicious! Would never have thought about making them this way. Thanks for sharing!

  11. This is so easy and SO delicious. My daughter is coming home from college for the weekend and requested this meal. Happy (and excited) to oblige!
