    This is one of my favorites! I usually leave out the tomatoes and reduce the cumin to 1/4 tsp. It gives me lunch for a few days and everyone I've made it for loves it.

    Very good recipe. I cut the recipe in half as I made it for one. I sent it to my daughter, as she loves shrimp. I will make it again but next time may omit the tomatoes.

    This recipe is fantastic! I made for the first time for a potluck dinner with about 50 people. It was the hit of the party! It is easy to prepare, makes a great presentation and is delicious! Thanks for the great recipe.
