Cilantro Lime Shrimp

I made THIS for dinner tonight. It was super easy, as most shrimp dishes are. I used frozen shrimp, probably would taste better with fresh shrimp. This dish was good, but I think overall I prefer a lemon taste to my shrimp then lime and cilantro...BUT I probably would make this again. Here is the recipe, it is from Gina's Weight Watchers Recipes, I served with salad and red potatoes.
