      I listened to everyone's reviews and added more lemon, it was not needed. The first few bites are impressive with the extra lemon, but shortly after it makes overkill. Make it as outlined here and you'll be fine! Also don't worry about seasoning until the reduction is done. All and all this was an excellent relatively easy dish that I plan to make again!!!!! Me and my hubby loved it!

      This is delicious!! I have eaten chicken piccata in Pepper's restaurant in McAllen TX that tasted similar to this, so I guess you could use sauteed chicken breast in this also. Will for sure make this again.

      I like the combination of veggies with the shrimp but the sauce is quite soupy (even with the tsp of cornstarch). Next time I would reduce the amount of milk by half and add freshly squeezed lemon juice to each plate.
