I was running low on Lemon Pepper; I had to use one Italian Herb. (Does this count as fusion cuisine?) Anyway, this was, nonetheless and to say the least, delicious! That said, planning on a trip to the store to restock. I'm going to try this with chicken next time.

I am allergic to shrimp and substituted chicken...it was so easy and so good!

It's quick, easy, delicious, and few dishes to clean up!

This was just ok. Easy and quick it is but it's lacking in depth of flavor. Maybe some sun-dried tomatoes would help.

This recipe was extremely easy and family friendly. My kinds loved it and have recommended I cook it again tomorrow. Will cook it with chicken the next time.

This is a wonderful dish. My family loved it. I could not find the lemon butter flavor at the store. So I used Italian Herb flavor.
