Thanks for sharing your recipe!
that looks yummy..ReplyDelete
This sounds really good - was it very spicy? Thinking about trying it out with the kids - we all love shrimp but have it breaded - this looks like a great way to break out our box.ReplyDelete
Mellisa...it does have a bit of a kick....you might want to leave out the red pepper when you make it for the first time for the kids.ReplyDelete
