Delicious. I even made the leftovers into a salad the next day.0 Helpful
The chimichurri sauce is amazing. I love it0 Helpful
Great flavor. Family really enjoyed them.0 Helpful
Made this on vacation with a very limited pantry, but I had fresh shrimp and wanted to give it a try! Instead of the chimichuri sauce I used a homemade basil pesto and added lots of olive oil, some salt and lime juice for consistency and flavor. I mixed it with corn, black beans, and a little chipotle powder. I didn't have chili powder so I used half chipotle powder in the shrimp. I had burrito sized tortillas, so we had shrimp burritos. My husband, 2 year old, dad, and I all loved it. Dad ate his on a bed of lettuce. I doubled the shrimp and shrimp seasonings and we had a little leftover. Wanted to make this in eggs for breakfast the next day, but didn't get to it.0 Helpful

Chimichurri was a cheat on this recipe. Chimichurri makes everything a 4-star meal. Shrimp were good, and corn/bean salsa was a nice accompaniment. Made in <30 mins.0 Helpful
