It was good, but not great
Barb 2 Jul
Loved the sauce to complement large grilled shrimp 8 to 10 minutes on the grill. It had PLENTY of kick even though I did not use spices like red pepper flakes in the marinade or cilantro avocado sauce

Turned out perfectly

I pan saluted these babies and they were great! The marinade has a little kick. You could easily step up the heat. I didn't make the sauce (too late at night)

The shrimp was delicious with the right amount of heat. I wasn't crazy about the avocado sauce as it was a bit bland but my husband and son really liked it! I may try making it with sour cream next time. I definitely will make the shrimp again.

This was great I made into tacos. I will use grill also but in Minnesota in Jan. it was cooked on stove

The shrimp was excellent! I didn't like the avocado dipping sauce as much (I think I need to reduce the amount of Greek yogurt to suit my tastes), but it was a nice cool flavor to pair with the shrimp. It is definitely a "repeat" for our family

Amazing recipe! A bit spicy but delicious. Will definitely make it again soon. Avocado sauce taste great.
