I thought this dish was too sweet, although my dinner guest enjoyed it. It's definitely worth trying again, but I would cut back on the Amaretto and add broth or cream as the base of the sauce.

Agree with the other review it is a bit sweet but quite an unusual taste goo dfor a side dish, i added tarragon and hot pepper, it does stretch out your shrimp so economical will make again.
