I don't see how this could be under $3 either! Shrimp alone is expensive! Unless they are thinking that you are just paying for the seasonings, which is stupid cuz you can't just make the recipe with obviously.....kind of link false advertising

It said $2.45 per serving, with four servings it should be close to $10 total. I assume they think you have the olive oil and other things already in your pantry though.

Very good...made some little altercations like using lemon juice and garlic powder and adding some mozzarella cheese, but overall it came out very delicious. Will definitely be making again
