  2. This is a real home recipe. Peeled shrimps really appeal to me but I for want of time, usually have the shell on them. They provide different taste – one is just crisper. I see you use fresh lemon juice for neutralizing the sweetness of the shrimp juice just like Carroll. These days the farmers market is selling orange colored shrimps too. It has always been the pink type. True, this recipe goes with roasted vegetables; making the herb and spices take on a new kind of taste.

  3. Great Recipe! I used to think that shrimp was bad for you since it’s high is cholesterol but studies have found that foods that are high in dietary cholesterol alone don’t raise blood cholesterol levels as much as foods that are high in saturated fat.

    I would have thought that since shrimp are high in fat that the calorie count would have been much higher

    People always stereotype shrimps to the “dark side” – having high levels of cholesterol which can trigger cardiovascular diseases. What I saw in some studies viewable online surprised me – shrimps has cancer-protection potential, prevents high blood pressure and protects against fatal heart arrhythmia. It’s good that you have a very good shrimp recipe on your blog! I know losing weight is as important as tasting good food. I have a collection of diet recipes too! You might as well try ‘em! :)

  17. I love shrimp recipes. Light in calories and fat, and I haven’t found too many people who aren’t happy with a shrimp dish!.

  18. I cook my shrimps just like that except that I haven’t tried them with parsley. If I don’t have olive oil at the moment then I cook the shrimps with a bit of soy butter spread and they still taste good.

  21. Your recipe is very good, but not everyone is suited to the cuisine of shrimp, what about those who are allergic to shrimp?

  22. Nice recipe. I think this would pair really well with a crisp pilsner or lager. Pilsner Urquell and Chechvar would be my choices!
