    This recipe serves 4 but can easily be doubled and takes only about 20 minutes to prepare. Note: I love the lemon flavor so I add a little more lemon zest and sometimes add a tablespoon or 2 of capers if I have them on hand. I also buy a bag of frozen cooked shrimp and use it in this recipe. It turns out just as good with alot less work because it is already peeled and deveined :)
