Gourmet Prawns indeed! I did two things differently-I heated the oil/butter, added the garlic then the mushrooms then finally added the prawns & green onions. Instead of sherry I used Vermouth and added that a few seconds after the prawns. Cooked them for apprx 3 minutes. Fantastic - they exploded in your mouth Love the recipe Thanks Martini Guy for posting

I just love this shrimp dish! I actually tripled the complete recipe and added in about 2 tablespoons crushed garlic, otherwise made as stated. The sauce from this is wonderful, fresh mushrooms and freshly ground black pepper is a must with this... a high class restaurant-quality dish with little effort, we loved this, thanks Martini Guy and your friend for posting this great shrimp dish, everyone loved it!...Kittencal:)
