    Kim in Walnut Creek's Note:

    Shrimp a la diabla ("devil shrimp") is a very popular spicy shrimp dish in Manzanillo, Mexico. After visiting I searched the internet for a recipe, and this was the closest I found. It is traditionally served with rice and vegetables (usually a mix of lightly steamed broccoli and carrots.) I haven't tried this recipe yet but it sounds delicious.

      I made it exactly like the recipe. It had good flavor, though I might try to make it a little hotter and spicier next time.
