  1. Shrimps are my sister's favorite. She will like this recipe for sure. Adding lemon slices will definitely make the flavor pop.

  2. I have to be honest.. i am not really a big fan of shrimps.. i love the taste but I just hate the fact that you have to unskin them every time you eat them LOL
    Hey but this one is already unskinned or shells have been removed so maybe I will give this a shot
