Good recipe with a tweak next time

Omit the peas, wrong flavor and texture for this combo. Added more garlic and lemon juice. Loved the yogurt sauce, but reduced the amount. Very tasty.

Loved the tang from the yogurt, garlic and lemon.

Delicious

I made this for my husband and father in law and we all loved it. It's a little tangy but I like that, creamy and I didn't feel guilty about eating it.

Fresh and light

Great except for the tangy, off-taste of the sauce

I am a registered dietitian and I loved the idea of this recipe but agree with many comments that the flavor is a bit too tangy and the texture too runny. I used plain Greek yogurt instead (personalrd.com) and the result was much better!

Lots of veggies, lower fat than alfredo sauce

Sauce makes this a waste of good shrimp and veggies

The sauce was just too weird tasting with the yogurt. If I made this again, I would find just a normal Alfredo or other sauce. It ended up being a huge waste of money, good shrimps and good veggies because we didn't eat it.

Shrimp, lots of good vegatables

Easy and delicious!

I've never seen such a controversial recipe! Seems like you love it or hate it! I read through some comments and decided to use 50% reduced fat creme fraiche instead of yogurt. everything else was exactly like the recipe. It was delicious and a perfect summer-time meal. I shaved on some parmesan before serving and sprinkled on some chili flakes for me. I would make this again for sure!
