These were lovely, I had some cooked prawns, so just heated those up in the sauce. I used Marsala since that's what I had on hand. Yummy. My phone appears to have eaten my photo, sorry I can't share that one with you.

Cocktail shrimp was on sale, so I used a bit of the oil to cook a clove of minced garlic and just warmed up the pre-cooked shrimp quickly in the oil and sherry. Still turned out great! The tabasco gives it a great little kick. Everybody loved it!
