    Unlike Elyse, I am a huge seafood fan. I don’t really like lemon with my meats… but this was really good. The portion size was fantastic. I’m all about quantity over quality, but In this case you get both.

    This might be my favorite recipe on here! Although I don’t like shrimp, I replaced with chicken and it was amazing. The sauce is so good and the portion size is great!
