This recipe is for those of us who want big flavor, but also fast and easy.
I used large shrimp for this recipe, but looking back, wished they would have been jumbos. Get what makes sense for you. The succulent savory-sour flavor is so delicious--that tongue-tingling ring that makes your salivary glands wake up! I make fluffy rice and a green salad to go with, but also love the shrimp folded into corn tortillas with shredded cabbage and scoops of fire-y hot salsa and sour cream.
